In the Orenburg Region, there is a ranch which looks like a set of a Western. The owner of all that is Oleg, 48, a local Russian Indian.
He works at a private horse club taking care of its horses. He loves his job which is at the same time his hobby. His life is that of a real American Indian, with a cowboy hat, a bow, a horse and a dog named Fox. His life changed when, in the 70s, he saw the movie 'Chingachgook, the Great Snake'. After that, he fell in love with American Indians and everything related to them. At age of 10, he went in for equestrian sports, archery and athletics.
Now, he easily hits a pack of cigarettes from a 20-meter distance.
He gave up equestrian sport, which he was rather successful in, because at some point he realized that it had nothing to do with Indians. So did his wife Svetlana. They both exchanged their sporting careers for love and care for horses.
At first, they lived in the city, but then sold their apartment and moved to the country to live in a wooden ranch and to be closer to horses. Their daughter is currently studying economics in Orenburg, but it is obvious that she also has some passion for country life and horses.
