Yep I ride horses too. How do I feel when I ride? Grateful that the big ol’ beast lets me stay on his back. I always bring lots of apples and carrots with me to the stables. Its best to makes friends with them first (smile).

I’d love to hear more about your Mongolia trip too. Would be nice if we could get a live chat room going? Just a suggestion.

Arlee, do you have any pictures of Mongolia you could share with us? What was the food like? Did you see inside those round nomadic houses.

Atlanta if we want to share pictures do we send to them to your email?

Atlanta, I’ve got a suggestion for you! you can set up a "I need help!" section in your blog for foreign friends in CHangzhou. They can ask any questions in this section. If you are not free to answer all the questions. All netizens entering your blog will be glad to help them! We are a big family.Thank you again for setting up this great platform for all of us!

Arlee you are my hero! Picked a new case today and spent way too much on other items for my photo taking enjoyment.

Hi Hazel, great explanation about horseback riding. If I can just add to that… when the horse is in a full gallop (running fast) your body feels like you’re FLYING. Much like in the sport of sailing when the wind is at your back, making your sails are full and carrying you across the water.

Hi Arlee, I would love to answer your question about horses. If you know how to make that 1500 pound (680 kg) animal that is intelligent and free-spirited know you’re the boss – it is exhilarating! If you do NOT know how to control him, it can be scary and dangerous. This animal eats 18 pounds of food a day and drinks 12 gallons of water. If he thinks he’s in charge, he can run up to 40mph (64km), or throw you off, or lay down with you under him. The hot-blooded horses tend to be jumpy but run like the wind. The cold-blooded horses make good work horses. Ha, can you tell? I LOVE HORSES and HORSE-BACK RIDING!

Hey hey, u guys pushed me a lot... Anyway, back to the questions (with simle)

Do you ride horses?
No, but the question makes me recall my journey to Mongolia in this January, hunting on the first day, 26 degree C below 0, nobody could be found on prairie (better to say desert since no green in winter) except us -- "riding" 2 Land Cruisers (toyota). Well, while we were driving those wild animals (mostly goats) trying to find some wolves, I figured out the feeling of hunters riding horses, the feeling of ruling the natural world (of course by human beings, not me). However, on the second day, after drove 800 kms on the desert, the gas was out (no power supply at the last gas tank), no mobile network could be reached, suddenly, I felt how the human beings were ruled by the nature. So, friends, could you please tell me what the feeling of riding real hourse is? Unrestraint or Conquest?

(I got my life back after 30 minutes getting a truck passed by)

Thank you all, I love you!
