Families from all over Mongolia come to UB for the races. They erect their gers and ready for the race.
There were three races this day, each for a different age horse. All riders are children, 3 - 11 years old! The races were between 22 and 35 KM.
First place winner in the first race.
The site was full of people, horses, kites in the sky and lots of khushuur and airag!
Culture Naadam is a wonderful addition to the races. We had traditional music, modern dance, and other performances. People could try archery, felt making, calligraphy, folklore and traditional art. An art installation of pinwheels was also there. A good time was had by all.....got home around 9pm....
