Horse riding around sightseeing in Mongolia

We took a 14-day road trip on the following route: from Ulaanbaatar to the North, then back to the center. In it, there will be four days of cowboy riding. As I read the route, the old German couple, our companion, turned pale and told him the guide, “Can we ride instead of riding?”.

The guy is okay constantly, as if he has become accustomed to the fact that he did not fight back. I was also trembling when I thought of the four days of traveling by horse, but maybe the twenties seemed to be as panicked as the other two uncles?

In the first stage, we rode horses in Khuvsgol National Forest. If you ask where it is, I would say it is a Siberian pine forest, there is a large lake called Khuvsgol in the forest, and in winter, the lake will freeze.

Just run the car and go there for a few dozen kilometers, you will reach the Baikal lake of Russia. In fact, Khuvsgol and Lake Baikal lakes are two twin lakes, only that Mr. Baikal “gluttons” should be a little fatter.

But right after 15 minutes of climbing the horse, I knew I was wrong. I think I can ride a horse for months. But like that roller skate, once you have taken the rule, you can go, then you will never fall again. And now, we just look at the sky and clouds, enjoy the summer Siberian pine forest full of flowers and grass, sometimes there is a clear stream crossing, it is cold and the air is clear.

Do not be afraid to give your beautiful horse a few shots to your butt if it keeps going back and forth to eat grass once, pee a little, poke. This game will repeat forever and you will never get anywhere, if you keep giving it up forever.

I originally loved my gentle, white-eyed horse, but after this he did so, as a result, I fell behind because it kept eating, eating and eating. So he asked me to give me a whip, and signaled me to punish him. Things are improved soon after.

They were brought here by their parents every afternoon during the week after school or two weekends. Particularly on Saturday morning, the school teaches math for children to rest.

Most of them changed positively after attending these equestrian courses. They become more bold, brave and proactive. Some of them even made difficult moves on horseback but not sure the young man dared to do it. I was watching, and suddenly a boy stroked my hair and smiled. It can be easily recognized that the boy is not normal in his physical and mental state, but I was surprised to see that 15 minutes later, the boy was riding very happily and steadily.

They choose pony instead of horse because they will sit and ride easier on the back of this dwarf stubby horse. However, the temperament of the pony is more uncomfortable and difficult to control than horse, why do they still choose pony when they know that people who often ride this type of horse are difficult and prone to accidents, let alone the disabled? The answer was unexpected, it was a test of will.

Actually there were a lot of children after a few training sessions that were riding a good horse. The children who have not done so will see their friends like that but have more motivation and determination. This is just play, extracurricular activity, so there is no competition at all, but just to stimulate your will to rise. The results after 31 years of school activities proved them right.

The principal said, once there was a ten-year-old girl, she was slow to develop, she could not do anything herself. My mother brought me here and just hope my child will have a good time. My ten horse riding courses passed. One day, the mother and daughter were bathing in the public bath, suddenly she raised her hand to rub her mother’s back. The mother was very surprised, because no one expected her to do anything for herself, let alone what to do for others. The mother cried all night because of happiness and the next morning called the teacher to report and thank.

In the list of the president of the World Federation of Horseback Riding for the past 60 years, there was Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh or Dutch Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld … enough to know that this sport belonged to How noble, noble and luxurious.

Art horse riding was the content of the Olympics in 1900, and became a regular Olympic sport from 1912 until now. Of course, the princes or princesses cannot compete in the style of mortals in the form of flat horse racing, they eat each other at speed.

Their play is of course a performance, a heavy art.

Then, in addition to competitions at the Olympics, FEI also hosts a temporary conference called “Olympic Riding”, which is also held every four years.

The performance is much, but in the middle, the art horse riding consists of 3 main groups. Dressage – the lightest group of content, like any other. Wanting horses to lift a front leg is the horse to follow. How much horse has to dance, walk, do basic shape, just show off.

Why do people never ride zebra

Almost in every documentary or film, storybook, we only see humans riding colorful horses that are never zebra. Zebra is a species of horse that lives in the wild, belonging to the genus Hippotigris, their connection point is black stripes interspersed with white stripes. Zebras often live in colonies in the vast prairies of remote Africa.

Going back to the question, why don’t we ever see a zebra rider like every other horse? To answer this, we need to understand the habits and behavior of this black-and-white zebra animal.

In the evolutionary history of mankind, it would be missing without mentioning the animals we domesticated. It could be cows, goats, sheep, and of course cats and dogs.

With animals that have tamed a lot of animals to serve as their needs to eat, keep warm … the common characteristics of these species are, easy to reproduce, have nutritional value or great use and almost not predators like tigers, leopards, …

With the above criteria, zebras meet almost when they are herbivores and also provide nutritional value and great use. But the most important point is that in terms of ease of reproduction, this species is not available.

They were originally wild animals with very high instincts, ferocious and hard-tempered. In fact, people have tried to tame zebras, but they are often difficult to tell, or attack other species, sometimes biting people without releasing them. So in the end, we are forced to release them to nature and abandon the intention of domesticating this creature.

In addition to the above dangerous characteristics, there is one more point that makes this species difficult to purely because they do not have a hierarchical lifestyle, or it is easy to understand that there is a lack of family structure.

What is family structure? That is the fact that each herd usually has a male head, followed by 6-7 females and then their offspring. Any child knows his position well, so if he can tame a male head, it is considered that we have a whole bunch of new horses.

American Aboriginal horses celebrate 150 years of fighting with white White skin-people

The Sioux Aboriginals traveled nearly 650 km on horseback, from South Dakota to Wyoming, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the peace agreement, ending the war with the US government. The Sioux tribe people this year organized a horse-riding journey to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Fort Lamine peace treaty, ending the war between the ancient nation of the Sioux Aboriginal people and the American government of white people. In the photo, members of Aboriginal tribes gathered into a circle in Harrison, Nebraska.

The ancient Sioux nation included the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska and Montana. After decades of war between Indians and whites, the Fort Lamine agreement was signed from November 29 to November 4, 1868, under which the US government recognized the Black Hills in Dakota territory.

The journey to commemorate the 150th anniversary of this year’s war lasts 640 km, starting from Green Grass, South Dakota. This is the homeland and residence of Arvol Lookinghorse, leader of all Sioux tribes. The group of horses departed from mid-April, with the destination being Fort Laramie, Wyoming, where the peace agreement was signed.

Every morning, the Sioux prayed, listened to a sermon and sang. After that, the group of horses set out, climbed the pass to the stream towards Wyoming. “The agreement is all we have, it tells us what, even if it is small,” said Wes Redday, a member of the Sioux delegation.

Fort Laramie agreement is often the subject of the journey story. Many Sioux people were the direct descendants of the leaders who signed the agreement 150 years ago. Some people carry pictures or drawings of the dead leaders with them. “The agreement helped maintain our sovereignty, helping us retain our identity,” said Allen Flying By, a native of the Standing Rock reserve.

From Green Grass, the group passed through Cheyenne natural reserve to reach Bridger settlement. Along the journey, people donated food to the horses, from dry bread to beef or chicken soup. The Aboriginal rested at cheap motels, or sometimes set up camps on the side of the road in all weather conditions.

People and horses can only meet four days before the fight. The name Palio in Italian means “flag”. This is also the only reward for the winner of the race. This famous event is meant to honor the Virgin Mary.

In addition, the winner will celebrate by sucking a pacifier or drinking with a bottle, the wish to show that he has been revived. Meanwhile, the runner-up was more despised than the last one. Before the official race took place, there will be 6 test races the previous few days for the horses to get used to the track and the crowd.
