Horseback Riding in Mongolia: Utah Editorial Photographer

This past summer I got to go on an incredible journey– horseback riding in Mongolia. We began the journey at the base camp of Horse Trails Mongolia. Off the airplane and straight into a ger. In fact, we got off the plane in the tiny Ulaanbaatar airport, and didn’t see any sign of civilization for nearly a week after that. A quick mini-market stop on our way to¬†Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, and that was about it. It was just us and our horses. We entered the park and loaded up our horses for the trek.

Horseback riding through the Mongolian steppe was one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done. I know that is a bold statement. But I haver never had such freedom on a horse before. I’m not even crazy about horses. It was incredible though to be given this wild animal and the ability to go wherever we wanted. Fast, slow, up a hill, through a river, whatever.

There was endless landscape. Every corner we turned, there were endless valleys, endless mountains. Climbing to a peak, you look down into six different valleys to choose from.

The horses were a bit wild. A bit like the American Mustang. Kind of tamed, but also they very much had a mind of their own. It made the riding a bit dicey at times, but overall it was enjoyable. Wooden saddle and all.

We stated in gers (Mongolian yurts), we camped in tents. Food was eaten by a river or with a nomadic family. It wasn’t always pretty, it wasn’t always comfortable. But somehow, it reminded me of why I love traveling. Something about the remoteness, the roughness, the bizarreness of the place. It was a catalyst for Kazakhstan. A big reason why I felt the need to travel alone this winter. I am excited to go back to Mongolia this summer and see how it makes me feel the second time around.
