I plan to be visiting Mongolia on horseback, and I have a few questions about the horses there:
how much ground can you cover in one day (average and max)?
how long can you mount in a day?
what king of saddle is best?

I guess I'll have the answers once I get there, but I'd like to setup a realistic planning.

Anyone been there, some advice/answer

Thanks

I have no answers whatsoever for those questions, however I really must ask, is this a case of two-Mongolian horse syndrome or what??

I've never been there, But I know the horses are sacred, and the people is warm and kind. I found this article in Traveler National Geographic. Hopefully will be helpful.

interesting links. but as anywhere else, it is only organised trips. I plan to start with one of these for a few days before deciding to set off on my own.

thanks for making me (re)discover the national geographic website, I'm more used to having a look and ending up buying the harcopies !

Just in case someone was looking for the same info as me, I got some good answers (and knowledgeable people) on LP forum, on these 2 threads:
