Blue Wolf Totem Charity Adventure Set to Conquer Mongolia www.americanhorsepubs.org

An epic 3,600 km charity horseback expedition across Mongolia looks to break records in 2021.
Set to leave from Khamariin Khiid, an ancient Buddhist shrine and an important Mongolian Energy Centre located in far South East of the Gobi Desert, The Blue Wolf Totem Ride is an epic 3,600 kilometer charity ride across the lands and through the full history of Mongolia. Taking its name from the famous Mongolian legend in which Genghis Khan or, as he is known in Mongolia, Chinggis Khan’s family sprang from the union of a blue wolf and a wild deer and paying homage to the fact that Chinggis himself took the blue wolf for his totem, the ride will take the participants through countless little known historical sites, stunning vistas and significant places and times in Mongolian history.

Fifteen riders from around the world along with their Mongolian crew will mount up on May 3rd, 2021 and head north from the Gobi Desert with the ultimate destination of the Heart of Mongolia – Altai Tavan Bogd Mountain. Along the way during their 84 days of trekking they will cross desert, steppe, wilderness taiga, mountains, sand dunes and everything in between. They will visit both the Tsaatan, the last nomadic Reindeer riders and the Kazakh Eagle hunters of Western Mongolia. Riding between 20 & 70 kms a day and with a rest day after each 10 days of riding, The Blue Wolf Totem Ride will take riders to secret mountain shrines, to famous and secret historical spots celebrating the life and times of Chinggis Khan, past shaman sites and sacred points and along rivers dotted with the burial shrines of ancient Mongolian warriors. History from the time of the dinosaurs to present day is the focus and riders will thrill to experience standing “People stones” and “Deer Stones” and visit remote caves containing some of the oldest cave paintings on the planet along with more modern twists as we visit the secret hideouts of 20th century “Robin Hoods” who stole horses from the rich and gave to the poor at the turn of the 20th Century.

This ride is the result of the long friendship between Baagii and Saraa of Horse Trek Mongolia and Julie Veloo of Veloo Foundation, who have together previously organized, managed and ridden in excess of 20,000 kilometers of charity rides across Mongolia. Together they have been hosting the Gobi Gallop – which at 700 kms in 10 days of riding rings in as the world’s longest annual charity endurance ride - for the past seven years. Like the Gobi Gallop, the purpose of The Blue Wolf Totem Ride is to raise awareness of and funds for Veloo Foundation’s Children of the Peak Sanctuary Project / Narnii Huuhduud which serves to feed, educate and care for nearly 1,000 children from Ulaanbaatar’s Ulaan Chuuluut Garbage dump community.

.The cost for this unparalleled 84 day ride is $14,500 USD plus a minimum $4000 USD contribution to the charity and a one time registration fee of $750. The ride can be entered by an individual or, for a slight surcharge, by a 2 or 3 member team who would divide the riding between them.
