Unlike Western horse racing, which consists of short sprints generally not
much longer than 2 km, Mongolian horse racing as featured in Naadam is a
cross-country event, with races 15–30 km long. Up to 1000 horses from any
part of Mongolia can be chosen to participate. Race horses are fed a
special diet.

Children from 5 to 13 are chosen as jockeys who train in the months
preceding the races.

Let me say that agai, 5 to 13 years old…

Arab and american long races are not even close to this omg I have done
this at mongolia but only for 50 miles there but there is longer ones which
I would die on the way

TheNaturalust says:

200 miles a day!?? Even though the terrain is mild, that is BRUTAL on the
horses. Especially when competition spurs immature young girls to try to
push them as hard as possible in order to win. Should be prizes for least
abused horse and other incentives which don’t rely on overworking the
animals, like most weight lost by a rider during the race….

Mongolians are the first largest empire in the entire world. Horse riding,
wrestling and shooting arrow is their specialty.

I want to do this one day. I’ve done a 100 mile endurance race with my
arab, but doesn’t even seem relevant compared to this. It looks like they
are on the native ponied as opposed to their own. It not easy to do an
endurance race on horses you’ve never ridden before. Best of luck to them!

AmaneeChaan says:

Tough for the horses? These horses were bred and trained to ride days and
days. Even so it is tough for both horse and rider.

ThumbdownMan says:

Those horses are so cute.
