Images of Mongolian Horses in Winter

23 Nov, 21 | by Admin | culture, travel, news

I visited the Winter Horse Festival or Steppe Horse Festival in eastern Mongolia for documenting Mongolian horse culture and capturing images of the winter horses. The festival is held in birth land of Chinggis Khan for promoting and keeping the legendary horse culture and passing it to the next generation. Hundreds of horses galloping on the steppe and their sounds, smells and the winter atmosphere wake our spiritual feeling or bring us feeling of a good luck, which exist inside of us, perhaps comes from our ancestors.

Traditionally dressed riders, kids and visitors and elegantly equipped horses are the beautiful part of the festival which also express a wonderful horse culture of nomads. Local horsemen participate the traditional horse games, such as catching and taming horses, ambler horse racing and hunting with taiga-hunting dog on horseback.
