Since the ancient times as illustrated on rock and cave paintings, horses were an inseparable part of Mongolian people and their lifestyle. The very first thing you have to know about Mongolian horses is that they are still half wild. Apart from few horses that are used for riding, the rest of the herd usually roams around grazing grass and spending their time free. Even the riding horses are set free in the evening. This is the main reason they have their own temper and unique character.
