The Mongol Steppe Riders
The legendary Genghis Khan once ruled the largest empire the world has ever known. What was the secret behind the success of the Mongol horsemen? Even today, some Mongols live a nomadic life and call a tent their home. At the famous Naadam festival, we meet amazingly talented archers and wrestlers. We also get to know why it is the children who ride the racehorses.
