Michidma lives together with her household in Khentii province, the birthplace of Genghis Khan, on a daily basis’s drive east associated with capital that is mongolian Bator. Her dream would be to battle within the Naadam Festival, a competition showcasing skills that are nomadic traditions, most importantly horsemanship.
Often girls are afraid of riding horses that are fast they don’t really hold on tight well and fall down. This is exactly why they’re not constantly chosen to race within the Naadam Festival.
Michidma has simply did not be eligible for your competition, losing off to a child. However it hasn’t stopped her dreaming.

Mongolia’s famous Naadam Festival is held yearly, marking the anniversary of self-reliance from Asia in 1921.
Typically only men had been permitted to get involved, however these times girls and ladies compete in horse race and archery.
