I have to admit that I was a bit apprehensive about taking out these people who don't really speak any English (thankfully my friend speaks Mongolian) and I was also quite proud to be able to put 5 out of 7 riders on Curlies! The two exceptions were my partner Warren (he was on his NSH) and my other local friend who was taking the picture for us (she was on her own horse).
The pictured riders and horses are (from left to right):
Baagii (he is a REAL horseman!) on *Charm
Saraa (Baagii's wife) on *Serenade
Me on *Tessa
Julie (my best friend) on *Cuervo
Anastasia on *Joe
The highlight of the day though, was Baagii asked if he could gallop *Charm and I said sure, so we went to the top of a hill and he came galloping up after us - he was standing up to gallop! (Mongolian style!) on my beautiful Curly horse *Charm! It was amazing and I sure wish that I had managed to get a photo of this, but I will forever have the memory of it!
Here are a few more photos from the ride - it was a special and exceptional experience for me to play host to these really neat people.
Finally, Saraa insisted that Warren and I try on their Dells (sorry for the likely mis-spell on this!), so Warren and I played dress-up. Warren got to also try on Baagii's "very' cool hat - wow was that a neat hat! Left to right are: Julie, Saraa, me, Warren, Baagii.
