Endurance Riding in Mongolia?

To me, this isn't a test of the horses, but of the riders. They switch out horses every 40 km for a 1000 km trek through the Mongolian outback -- um, what part of Mongolia isn't outback???

I don't think I would do this, but maaaayyyyybe I would, if I was single, no kids...

While you're there, check out the other adventure trips. Way cool. I would totally do the Mongol Rally!

Depends on your definition of outback, I suppose, but maybe the massive desert bit? Or the big mountains in the north-west?

That aside, however, I would happily sign up to nearly all of their activities. They started out as another outfit and have grown since then, but they're still a nice bunch.

You should sign up for the Mongol Derby anyway - think how impressed your kids would be!

Four horses, two people. 4000km in to the South American leg of our trip,and now in Brazil. Drop us a line on The Great Horse Trip

Joe, some of the events on that site are charity events. So you'd have to cover all your own expenses, but I don't think registration is very much. You should do it!
