Description

There are over 3 million horses in Mongolia and therefore  about the same amount as the entire human population. Nowhere in the world is  the ratio of horses to people as high as in Mongolia.                        

 Mongolian horses are  small and sturdy measuring 1.25 to 1.45 meters. The Mongolian horse is kept  outdoors throughout the year and therefore has to bear temperatures up to  30°C in summer and -40°C in winter.  The Mongolian  national drink Airag is gained from the mare’s milk. It tastes sour and  tingling at the same time and is an everyday form of nourishment among Asian  steppe people.              

The origins of the  Mongolian horse lie way back. Central Asian nomadic people already used  riding horses 3000 years ago. Studies show that the Mongolian horse has the  greatest genetic diversity worldwide from which many of today’s horse breeds  originate.
