Locals love saying: ''We are nothing without our horses" And this is true even in the present day. The nomadic lifestyle is largely horse-based and horse-dependant, particularly for those nomads who live outside of Mongolia's capital city Ulaanbaatar, as the rest country's area is mainly pristine wilderness composed of steppes, river valleys, forests, and highlands—best crossable atop a hardy Mongolian ​horse. Thus, for a true impression of the Mongolian way of life one must definitely try horseback riding usually available between mid-June and mid-August.
