  horsemen saying hello
by sachara

On our way from Khujirt to Karakorum we met these three horsemen. Our busdriver stopped, just to say hello to the horsemen and for a small chat.
Horses are the pride of Mongolia. There are not many nomads in the country, who haven't learn to ride a horse as soon they can walk.
The horse is still one of the most important means of transportation in the countryside, like it allready is for thousands years. The last decades some countrymen also have acquired a motorbike, but most still use horses.
Horses, galopping across the steppe, is that not one of the images you got, when thinking of Mongolia ??
