Mongolian Racer

Click to see VideoThere is a lot of controversy among the Western horse world around Mongolian horse practices. Horse meat and milk has sustained their culture for centuries & their races, while brutal, hone centuries old skills and keep their stock strong.

I Don’t Have To Agree

While I will never try horse meat and am not interested in racing a horse until it drops under me, I don’t feel I’m in a position to judge their culture. These practices have been in place since long before the US was around and will continue until the ‘civilized world’ catches up to them. Until then there is something remote and intense about their lifestyle that embodies a spirit that perhaps us westerners will never understand.

Ahh, Technology

When all is said and done these glimpses into a lifestyle that is literally a world away are priceless. The same technology that will eventually chase down & destroy cultures like these tomorrow allows us a peek into their world today.
