The Mongol Derby

70-Year-Old Wins 620-Mile Horse Race in Mongolia

The Mongol Derby is the longest endurance race in the world, a 1000 kilometre race across the harsh terrain of the Mongolian steps, 70 year old Bob Long from Idaho won this gruelling long distance race beating 43 other riders, competing the 620 miles in eight days of riding.
620-Mile Horse Race
Bob is not only the oldest rider to win the Mongol Derby, but is also the oldest competitor to begin the race. Bob was inspired to compete after watching the film `All the Wild Horses` based on the world-famous Mongol Derby, Bob spent months training for the grueling race, which is based on the cross-continent messaging route established in the 12th century by Ghengis Khan. Below you can watch some footage from the start of the race.
ContentAdvert The Mongol Derby is an equestrian endurance race. The race extends 1000 km through the Mongolian Steppe and is known as the world`s longest horse race. The course recreates the horse messenger system developed by Genghis Khan in 1224. In the 2016 race, there was 21 men and 23 women playing the role of the messengers, and representing 13 countries. The exact course changes every year, and is kept secret until shortly before the race begins. The terrain will invariably include mountain passes, green open valleys, wooded hills, river crossings, wetland and floodplains, sandy semi-arid dunes, rolling hills, dry riverbeds and of course open steppe. The entry fee is £11,375, and provides the rider access to 25-27 Mongolian horses, a support team, pre-race training, and access to the support stations along the way. Riders must change horses every 40 km at the support stations.

Along the way are vet checks to monitor the condition of the horses, and the vets may impose time penalties if the riders push their horses too hard along the trail. To gain entry as a competitor, each rider must demonstrate that their riding skills are strong enough to endure the harsh terrain of the race. The horses themselves are semi-wild, and may not cooperate with the rider, adding one more level of difficulty to the race. Riders will spend thirteen to fourteen hours a day in the saddle, and the race lasts ten days. To complete the race is an accomplishment in and of itself, as only half the racers usually finish the race in any given year.

A month later he was introduced to his first horse when his dad took him for the first time to the barn; the very same day that Secretariat will take the first jewel of the triple crown with an eye-catching performance stopping the Kentucky Derby clocks in 1’59 2/5. Few months later a southern hemisphere foal named Santorin achieved similar With Stakes winner Lola Pistolas and Julio Pezua in the irons results and became the best horse in South America. After Santorin captured the most famous South American race, the Group-I Argentinean Stakes Carlos Pellegrini, for more than 13 lengths a news wire by Information agency EFE cross the pacific with a challenge issue by the connections of Santorin for a match against the horse of the century Secretariat.

WHY IS NATIONAL SHIRE SHOW SO UNIQUE? Well, in addition to the Queen of England being the patron of the Shire Horse Society and Princess Anne being immediate past president of the Society and attending a reception at St. James Palace in London the evening of March 14, 2000 prior to the Show, is unique in itself. Added to the knowledge that the Shire Horse Society registers 95% of the worlds Shires and being fewer than 200 mares and 25 stallions were registered within England in 1998 for exhibitors to assemble more than 150 horses for this show is quite a feat.

Come Horse Trail Riding With Us

Horse trail riding is our passion ... getting out in the fresh air with our favourite friends ... both the four legged and two legged variety ... is what we like to do on the weekends.

Gold Coast & Albert District Horse Trail Riding Club was formed in January 2009 by a group of like-minded horse enthusiasts who wanted to join ATHRA (Australian Trail Horse Riders Association), but particularly wanted to do every second ride in their area.

Sitting around a camp fire, we decided that we would cater for the geographical area from the Nerang River at the Gold Coast north to the Albert River near Beenleigh. East from the east coast between these two landmarks over to the western suburbs of Cedar Creek, Logan Village and Chambers Flat.

Bozeman Montana hotel

Some folks around Bozeman Montana bristle at the label "cow town." After all, this southwest Montana city just off I-90 offers inviting cafes and B & Bs, the outstanding Museum of the Rockies, and Yellowstone Park just 90 miles south. Nevertheless, it`s Bozeman`s cowboy heritage that gets attention this month. Some 400 men and women from 90 schools gather June 12 through 16 for the 41st annual College National Finals Rodeo. It offers chances to see top amateur riders and delve into the cowboy experience. For help with lodging, write or call the visitor bureau, 1205 E. Main St., Bozeman Montana 59715; (800) 228-4224. Five evenings of rodeo; a horsy parade From 8 to 10 Tuesday through Saturday, there`s nonstop action at Montana State University`s 5,600-seat Breeden Fieldhouse. Competitors rope calves, wrestle steers, bust broncs (oldest rodeo event), ride bulls (the toughest). Rough-riding events are dominated by Northwest colleges, roping by Southwestern schools. Best seats for bull riding and bronc busting are in the arena`s east end (sections E and I); for roping, it`s the west end (B and F); for overall views, try C and H. Reserved seats are $6 to $8 (Friday and Saturday nights sell out early). Write to the rodeo, 502 S. 19th St., #303, Bozeman Montana 59715; or call (406) 994-4813.
