catching the horses

Mongolian step. Amazing landscape.

 

This is 18 year old guy who was catching the horses for us. It took him two hours.

Mongolian horses are great! Very polite and very brave. It was fantastic day, we did 30km on the horseback.

 

In Mongolia, the horses live outdoors all year (at 30°C in summer down to -40°C in winter) and search for food on their own. The mare's milk is processed into the national beverage Airag, and some animals are slaughtered for meat. Other than that, they serve as riding animals, both for the daily work of the nomads and in horse racing.
