(Thank you, Jamie from This Mustang Life, for telling me about this race!)
HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE GOBI DESERT CUP?!
It sound so awesome! Basically, people are chosen from around the world (you apply…) to compete in an endurance race on Mongolian horses. 300 miles or 480 kilometers. 50 miles a day for 6 days.
Wow! OHMYHORSEGODS! I would do this in a heartbeat! You have to get yourself there and pay the entrance fee (approx $7K US) … and pay for your own insurance. But IMAGINE the amazing adventure! You will be given a Mongolian horse (wow) that has been trained by a Mongolian trainer… (no groundwork like we are used to…). THIS kind of a story would just about fill up your bucket list. I would do this for sure. Please let me know if you have done this race or are going to do it!

JANUARY BUCKET FUND – Let’s help 21 Donkeys!
These donkeys lost their owner suddenly and had no one to come to their aid except Dr. Kris Anderson. She brought them onto her personal property and had them gelded, teeth done, feet done, vaccines, meds, and gave them much needed nutrition. You can read their story here.
All donations are 100% tax deductible. THANK YOU in advance!!
We are only $315 away from helping Dr. Kris will all of her hard costs for meds, feed and farrier! Click here to donate! (Thank you!)
