Michidma Gombosuren13 years oldKhentii province
I like riding horses, particularly quick people. I’m able to drive horses as quickly as any child. Once I’m riding personally i think like i am riding when you look at the Naadam Festival.
Michidma lives along with her family in Khentii province, the birthplace of Genghis Khan, every day’s drive east regarding the capital that is mongolian Bator. Her fantasy is always to battle within the Naadam Festival, a competition showcasing nomadic abilities and traditions, most importantly horsemanship.
Often girls are frightened of riding horses that are fast they don’t really hang on well and fall down. Which is why they may not be constantly chosen to race within the Naadam Festival.
Michidma has simply did not be eligible for a your competition, losing off to a child. Nonetheless it hasn’t stopped her dreaming.
I want to have a baby girl and teach her how to ride horses really fast when I grow up. I do want to train her therefore she shall win the Naadam competition. That is my fantasy.
Mongolia’s famous Naadam Festival is held annually, marking the anniversary of freedom from Asia in 1921.
Typically men that are only permitted to participate, however these times girls and females compete in horse race and archery.
