Stone Horse Expeditions & Travel provides horse riding vacations in the cultural and wilderness landscapes of Mongolia’s Gorkhi-Terelj National Park and the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area (Wilderness). These two protected areas combine make up the largest roadless area in the country, where one can experience the nomadic herding and horse culture of Mongolia along with outstanding mountain steppe wilderness.

The Khentii Mountains was the home ground of the young Chingis Khan, where he honed his skills as a horseman and warrior. The ancient trails and tracks, mountain passes and river crossings that Stone Horse Mongolia Horse Riding Expeditions & Travel uses are the very same Chingis and his armies rode upon as they built a nation.

Stone Horse Expeditions' Mongolian horses are the same sturdy breed used for centuries in Asia. They are slightly smaller than horses found in North America and Europe, but very tough for mountain travel. Although Mongolian saddles are interesting and quite beautiful, Stone Horse uses custom Western saddles that are comfortable for both horse and rider. Tented camps and ger (yurt) sites for each nights' accommodations are chosen for their wilderness beauty and solitude to give guests a special experience on their horse riding holiday.

Stone Horse Expeditions has spent the past 15 years riding through this great area, exploring, meeting with nomadic herders, making local friends and developing Mongolia horse rides to make them interesting and enjoyable. Sharing this with guests, giving insight into the nomadic world and horse culture of Mongolia, brings the guides at Stone Horse a special pleasure. The hosts and owners of Stone Horse Expeditions & Travel, lead the trips and oversee the packing, camp and cooking. The team on the expeditions is complimented by Mongolian staff, who are happy to share the culture and history of their country with travelers. They are young horsemen and women who grew up on horseback in the Mongolian countryside.
