Mongolia

Photo from the Orkhon Valley Trails (Mongolia ) ride.

Mongolia is located in central Asia and shares its borders with Russia to the north and China to the south. You will find four well-defined seasons, and on average, the sun shines for well over 200 days a year. The climate is harsh continental with low precipitation. The coldest month sees extreme lows in January and the hottest month peaks in July. Mongolia is the land of blue sky, boundless space and the cradle of true nomadic people. A country that exudes calmness, Mongolia is one of few places where nature still remains in its original condition, creating a magical place to experience on horseback. Here, horse riders will find fresh air, pure water springs, sand dunes of Gobi desert and high mountains, endless steppe and deep forests. One can discover many historical delights, such as, etched stone monuments, deer stones, rock drawings and forgotten tombs.

This is a country rich in Florna and Fauna with a total of 138 mammal species, 449 bird species, 75 fish species as well as amphibian and reptile species. A total of 30 mammal species and sub-species have been included in the rare and very rare classifications of the Mongolian Red Book, revised in 1997 which also includes the takhi (Przewalskii horse) as well as many other mammals that are now totally protected. The Mongolian horse is one of the most important breeds found among the indigenous horse breeds of China. It is a dual-purpose horse, used primarily for riding and carting, but is also used for milk production. The average wither height of males is 128 cm, females 127 cm, but body size varies with environmental conditions. The takhi horses are the last remaining wild horses in the world and probably the most recognised symbol of preservation and protection of Mongolia's diverse and unique wildlife.
