Our Mongolia Horse Riding Tours

Our horse riding tours in Mongolia offer a relaxed, unstructured experience, ideal for small groups of friends or family with intermediate to advanced riding skills (comfortable at a walk, trot, and canter on on varied terrain) and who want to discover and explore the freedom of the Mongolian steppe in a natural, less regimented way.

We collaborate with local horse herders, with whom we have established long-term partnerships. In Mongolia, horses symbolise strength, spirit, freedom, and independence. Our herder partners embody these qualities and cherish their freedom. Consequently, our horse trekking routes are not predetermined, as Mongolian herders do not follow set paths or routines. Instead, you will ride alongside your Mongolian herder host through their homeland on horses they personally care for and own.

Our horse trekking experiences celebrate the authentic Mongolian style of riding, allowing you to immerse yourself in one of the world’s most renowned horse cultures. Experience the central role of horses in the herding lifestyle, gaining a unique perspective from horseback.

Tailor Made Horse Riding Tours

Khangai Nomad Trails |14 Days | 5 days riding 

In partnership with Tomorbat herding family

Mongolian’s divide their country into three distinct eco regions – Gobi, Khangai and Tal Kherem Bus – desert, mountain and steppe. Khangai describes the mountain steppe and mountain forest steppe regions of their country and that’s the region that this trip with a five-day wilderness horse trek focuses on. The whole area is dominated by wilderness – rugged mountains, alpine lakes, wildflower meadows, river valleys and the southern-forested fringes of the Siberian Taiga. Landscapes play an important part in the way of life of rural Mongolians and as you discover and explore the different regions of the Khangai, so you’ll experience the diversity of the way of life of the people that make their home in these landscapes.

 

 

Khovsgol Migration Trails | 16 Days | 9 days riding 

In partnership with the Baasanchuluu herding family

Khovsgol Nuur National Park in northern Mongolia is justifiably considered a highlight of Mongolia. But, there is so much more to it than the famous lake. There is a wide range of habitats – wet meadows, shallow ponds, coniferous forest, steppe woodland, open steppe, alpine meadow, high mountains and the lake and lakeshore. On this trip you’ll get to experience all those different aspects as we show you a more local and human side to this remarkable area on an extended horse trek through the landscapes of Khovsgol Nuur National Park, the Khoridol Saridag Mountains Strictly Protected Area and the wild immensity of the Darkhad Valley.

Wild Terelj Trails  | 7 Days |  5 days riding 

In partnership with the Naraa herding family

Yes, Gorkhi-Terelj National Park is one of Mongolia’s most visited destinations and it is included in many general tour itineraries but this is not about the ’must see’ sights. The hinterland of Terelj is a stunning area to explore in its own right – especially as you’ll be going a little more off the beaten trail as you horse trek and wild camp through an ecoregion with habitats as diverse as long river valleys, barren mountain tops, and high open Mongolian steppe, coniferous forests of Siberian Pine and Siberian Larch and sub-alpine meadows.

Living With The Tsaatan |16 Days | 6 days horse trek | Can be extended to include Khovsgol Nuur National Park or shortened with domestic flights

In partnership with the Narankhuu herding family

Located in the far north of Mongolia, the Darhad Depression is a broad expanse of open steppe and low forested hills and home to several thousand square kilometres of natural habitat classified as taiga (also known as the boreal forest). This vast region is Tsagaan Nuur, and as well as forming the northernmost tip of Mongolia, it provides the home range for the world’s southern-most indigenous reindeer population. This experience allows you to live alongside the Tsaatan and experience their way of life. However, this is not an ‘organised tour’  and during your time with the Tsaatan, nothing is contrived or planned.  Apart from the road trip to access the taiga, it is a journey on which you must be prepared to step outside your comfort zone.

Altai Trails |18 Days | 10 days riding |

In partnership with the Bashakhan & Asker eagle hunting families

Altai Tavan Bogd NP Mongolia
Altai Trails Horse Trekking

Basakhan is a Kazakh eagle hunter that we work in long-term local community partnership with and the main trek that forms the centrepiece of the itinerary was designed and put together between EL and Bashakhan. It is Bashakhan’s local knowledge that makes this itinerary so special as you experience a different more hidden side of the Altai as you trek with Bashakhan from his summer pasture at Tsengel Khairkhan to the Altai Tavan Bogd Lakes of Khoton and Khurgan Nuur. Although this brief description does not do this remarkable region justice – it is unexpectedly beautiful. An alternative to the popular Tsagaan Gol trek. Because of the way we work you’ll get an original insider experience – a more intimate and local introduction to the Altai region – a side that few other travellers get to see and experience.

 

Riding With Eagle Hunters | 9 days | 5 days riding| Late October to February only

In partnership with Mongol Kazakh eagle hunters Bashakhan & Asker

Amid the arid yet strikingly beautiful landscapes of western Mongolia, the Kazakh eagle hunters have a way of life that has been shaped by history, geography and political change. Out here, all schedules go out of the window. You’re on nomad time, and the daily activities depend on your host family, the eagle hunter, and the weather conditions. Days are spent trekking in the mountains on foot, or heading out on horseback. You’ll witness the eagle hunt, and the close relationship and communication needed between hunter and eagle. But leave your preconceptions behind.
