So much drama in the photograph. This is a race on an epic scale! What an experience to watch this 😉

I couldn’t believe all the jockeys were kids!

NO WAY!!! I didn’t pick up on that. That is INCREDIBLE! Such skill and bravery. I tried horse riding but never got to the stage where they gallop! Hats off to these jockeys.

I was told that all Mongolian children are taught to ride even before they’ve learned to walk! I can’t verify that this is true, but all the jockeys I saw were definitely not adults.

I can see the logic there for sure as this mode of transport is speedier than walking! What an accomplishment for a young person 😉

Quite! I was in definite awe. 🙂
