 Travelling means riding..

Mongolia's grass steppe has been the home of a small, tough horse breed for thousands of years. People still live as nomads and therefore their most important means of transport is the horse. The horses are used as mounts or as pack animals. It is not possible to say exactly how long these small, tough horses have been around, but the first descriptions of the Mongolian horse can be found as early as 2000 B. C. In literature, the Mongolian horse breed is listed as one of the oldest on earth. The Mongolian horse enabled only Chingges - Khan and his successors to achieve great military successes and the expansion of the Mongolian Empire. Mongolia still has more horses than its population.
