      The Mongols and their horses

      The history of the "empire of the steppes", like that of nomadic pastoralism, is indissolubly linked to horses. According to a Mongol saying, "a Mongol without a horse is like a bird without wings". Mobility was the key concept and the most important strategic doctrine of the Turco - Mongol tribes - the tactics and logistics of their armies were entirely determined by the horse. Horses were broken in through long hunts organized since the time of the Hunnu in which up to 10.000 horsemen took part. In the Mongol period, each autumn, the khan organized large hunts to help train his cavalry. The Mongol horse is small, being about height of a double pony (1.3 meters at the shoulder) and relatively light (between 300 and 350 kilos on average).
