Horse Hound and Hunt congratulates Georgian Stan John Michael in finishing in 8th place at the 2022 Mongol Derby. Considered as the longest horse race, the Mongol Derby covers 1000 km in 10 days or less across the Mongolian Steppe.
“You can ride from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., and you typically change horses three or four times,” Michael said. “And you change horses at least 28 times to complete the whole race.”
“I was just hoping to be able to finish, that was my main goal” he said. “There were 48 riders from the beginning, and I finished 8th out of 48.”
