Photos of Mongolia Horse Riding

Photography for Environmental Awareness and Nature Conservation in Mongolia

Photography has always played a role in our work to show the beauty of nature, and to raise public awareness of threats to the natural environment and the need to protect the resources of our planet and to set aside pristine wilderness. We are continuing this work in Mongolia with our eco tourism riding expeditions.

Stone Horse Expeditions into the Gorkhi Terelj National Park and the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area offer great opportunities for photography,of nature, of horses, of riding adventures in Mongolia and of the interesting historic and cultural sites we explore on our horse trekking expeditions in Mongolia.

A true Riding Adventure..
.
Our horseback expedition into Mongolia's Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area takes you through the grasslands of Gorkhi Terelj National Park before entering the forest and mountain wilderness.
.
The destination is a remote lake - making for a beach holiday of a very different kind. While a swim in the lake is nice, its also great to explore the surroundings, on foot and on horseback.
.
We have spotted moose here grazing in the shallow water at dusk, and there is bear, deer and wild boar.
.
The trek to and from the lake is not without challenges - river crossings and bogs are part of it. This is a real adventure ride. We travel with saddle and pack horses, our equine professionals know the trail and the terrain, and never cease to amaze us with their back country skills.
.
Its during such wilderness travel that riders really bond with their horses who carry them over passes, through high running rivers and across bogs. Its always a nice aspect when we are out there to see how guests get to know and appreciate their trail horse.
.
We run another trek to the lake this September. See link in bio for details. This expedition goes only twice a year. Spots open for the September 4 - 15 trek.

On our recent Wilderness Conservation Adventure in Mongolia
.
This once a season horseback expedition in early August is dedicated to help with wilderness preservation in Mongolia's Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area
.
The Khan Khentii wilderness includes this remote lake, besides numerous small alpine lakes and ponds beyond the forest clad mountains amongst which the lake is hidden.
.
We enjoyed two days here, one spent mostly in the big tipi tent, sheltering from the rains. .
The next day brought beautiful sunshine and opportunity to do our beach and campsite clean-up work, retrieve our wildlife cameras - and enjoy this beautiful place - swimming, strolling along the beach or exploring the forest flora and fauna.
.
The ride to and from the lake is a true wilderness expedition, with crossings of rivers, bogs and a high pass - a real riding adventure, especially after rainy days.
.
Having ridden these trails for twenty years now, we see the impacts of climate change on the natural landscapes here, and on our operations.
.
With permafrost melting, bogs are getting deeper and more challenging to traverse. With rains seeming to shift to August, and later, rivers run high even later in the season, and the frequency of floods seems to have increased.
.
Our amazing Mongolian trail horses  take it all in a stride - bringing riders and packs safely through it all. We are still in awe of them, their abilities and willingness after all these years traveling with them as the best companions on these challenging wilderness trails.
