MONGOL DERBY 2019

Published: 2019-08-15 14:32:01

CONGRATULATIONS and WELL DONE 

 

Wiesman Nel  from Bethlehem Club who finished 2nd in the Mogol Derby  

and to

Sampie Mokoakoe from Bethlehem Club who finished 17th in the Mogol Derby.

The Mongol Derby is modelled onthe postal route and system developed by Genghis Kahn in the 13th Century.

Riders change their semie-wild horses regularly and stay with local herders or camp under the stars.

Only twenty riders finished the 1000km contest.

The winner  was Bob Long (70 years old) from Wyoming.

The derby has the emphasis on 

THE EXPERIENCE and not THE RACE

Sampie won

SPORTMANSHIP AWARD

as he would always be free to help everyone and after a day's ride still had energy to mingle and "converse" in sign language as he does not understand a word of English and would play sokker with the kids

AND

HERDERS AWARD

for the favourite rider.  The herder said  "Everyone was talking about he unbelievable sprituial connection he had with his horse" and they wanted to know his secret
