GOBI NOMAD FAMILY
 
AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE WITH GOBI NOMAD FAMILY

Meet Urtaa, a proud and very skillful mid-forty herder and horse trainer of the region of Ulaagchinii Khar Nuur, the Black Lake of Zavkhan Province, Western Mongolia. Urtaa is our best horse trainer in the region of Great Mongol Sand Dunes. Although his skills and experience of the horses are invaluable, he also had worked with the tourism industry in the past, to bring along the visitors to the great landscapes outdoors.

His lifelong experience of the horses made specialists “breaking” horses, in order to bring them from a wild state to a docile and ready-to-ride companion. He also trains horses for race competitions like the Naadam, and knows how to keep them in perfect condition with a proper diet/regimen. He won several awards in the past, participating in the Aduuchin, the herder's horsemanship competitions. Very resourceful and resilient, he crafts his own equestrian accessories.

He also has an interest in repairing and driving cars. With his wife, they gave birth to 2 children, currently at school in 1st and 3rd grade. They too help with the nomadic chores and the daily activities around the camp. His wife is a lecturer at the National University Mongolia in Zavkhan province, the best-known public school in the country, aside from Ulaanbaatar. A very smart and busy lady, constantly around the camp for producing dairy products, from their cows and goats. Great at sewing, she proudly provides all the family’s traditional costumes, the “deel”. They have a habit of traveling long distances to reach their next campsite. In the past, their ancestors used to use camels when doing this transhumance.
