Only about a month left till the National Naadam Festival. Horse breeders and wrestlers are already out for their preparation. This year's Naadam festival is different than previous ones in that horses from Inner Mongolia, the People's Republic of China are to be raced in the State National Naadam
Festival to be organized at the Khui Doloon Khudag.
A total of 18 horses from the “Tsegee” horse race track of Erlian city, Inner Mongolia have been brought to Ulaanbaatar to race at Naadam in this week.
The horses have been delivered a month ago to Mongolia, so that they would have enough time get acclimatized to Mongolian climate, pasture and water.
Currently, it hasn't been finally concluded yet if the horses will take part in the Naadam
race or not, first these horses will go through a veterinarian check up and examination and then precise origins of their breed shall be determined by organizers. Even though the horses from Inner Mongolia won’t be that much different than Mongolian horses, it is still possible that the horses might be of crossbreed origins.
