Mongolia Horse Riding – Photo Blog

Mongolia is well known for its great horse riding opportunities. Mongolia horse riding is what Stone Horse Expeditions is based around. Below in the short photo blog you’ll see a few photo’s of what we do, where we do it and people who have joined us. Photo’s of Mongolia horse riding are great, but you really have to “experience” this to understand the beauty and simplicity of seeing a country by horseback. No phones, no internet, wifi, or whatever, out where we ride. Just the sounds of nature. Something less and less people are listening to these days. Mongolia horse riding is the experience. And that’s what we want you, our guests, to take away from a trip with us. An experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. An experience of Mongolia horse riding that very few people will actually have and you’ll be able to talk about with some authority. Mongolia is changing fast. Come to Mongolia now for the experience. You won’t regret it.

The Stone Horse Saddles

Mongolian saddles are interesting to look at, but they take some skill with riding to get used to them and if you haven’t grown up using a Mongolia saddle it can be difficult to overcome. Stone Horse makes our own saddles to use on our trips that are sturdy and well tested for our rides in the back country as well as comfortable for both the horse and rider, an important aspect as we spend long days in them. They are also attractively designed and pleasing to look at.

More and more of the saddles in use on Stone Horse Expeditions are from our own Saddlery “Stone Horse Saddles”. They are sturdy and designed to last a long time and easily repairable in the field, as well as comfortable for both horse and rider and important aspect.

A word about food for our Mongolia Horse Riding

We take great pains to source and provide fresh and nutritious meals for our guests. We like to say “sourced locally, seasoned internationally”. We believe it is highly important to have the sustenance necessary for riding all day long for days at a time. Our meals include fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, breads, cheeses, soups and wines, along with fresh ground coffees and a variety of teas. Our guests deserve the best we can offer.

Muesli, yogurt, fruit, bread, jam, fresh ground coffee, a variety of teas, scrambled eggs and pancakes are the usual fare. Local berries later in the season make for an extra treat.
