At the stable of the State M.A. Sholokhov Museum-Reserve one can learn about the Don horse breeding traditions and a Cossack tenor of life, of which a horse was an integral part, a devoted friend of a Cossack. Here the visitors can see real Don runners and try themselves in the role of  horsemen.

The first four horses were brought in in 2004. Now in the stable there are 14 horses of the Budyonnovskaya, Trakenen, Orlovskiy Trotter and Russian Arden breeds as well as a pony of the Shetland breed.
