Plot synopsis
That's it: the talking horse Youli is in love! And this time it is quite serious: he asks for the hand, that is to say the hoof, of the royal mare of Sultan Rachid named Etoile d'Orient. But a man of the Tsar's family can only ask for the hand of a mare of royal blood. Youli asks the prince of Kiev for help but is refused. But our suitor does not intend to give up. He kidnaps the prince and takes him by force to the sultan to obtain the marriage. And the bogatyrs also have things to do in the East. Everyone agrees to organize big races where the winner will get everything he wants.
