More Mongolia. 2006 is an auspicious year in Mongolian history. It marks the 800th Anniversary of the Great Mongolian State and will be honored by a string of nationwide celebrations that will last for the whole of the year.
A featured part of the festivities will be the Cavalry Ride. The five-hundred-man cavalry is comprised entirely of soldiers and has been made possible thanks to cooperation from the Mongolian Ministry of Defense. As the cavalry emerges out of the grassland steppe in a cloud of dust, a fearsome spectacle is relived. The sight of the procession of soldiers marching in a straight line reminds us of Genghis Khan's mighty army.

cool shot! =) but initially i thought something was wrong with the picture. then i realized it would be more impressive if the lead horse was bigger and more imposing! =) it looks like a pony! the lead guy is almost touching the ground. not so fearsome i think! lol!=)

Very very well captured image of the famous Mongolian Horses and the riders... It looks like a scene from centuries ago... For me the one at the middle looks fascinating between the dusts like a fearful ghost...:))
Well done and thanks for sharing...

Splendid frame in dusty atmosphere with the Genghis Khan’s soldiers in action with their spears and bows on hand. I can not imagine 500 soldiers shouting together and what a great dynamism there. Excellent color and scene. Congratulations.
