Naadam Festival

A Mongolian man wearing a traditional Mongolian deel; leans over his horse attempting to grab a wooden switch off of the ground while riding at a full gallop after the Naadam Festival at the Three Camel Lodge in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia on July 31, 2012. Horsemanship is very important to the Mongolian culture and this extra-festival sport has grown out of the fact that horse racing is considered one of the ?Three Manly Sports? practiced during the Naadam Festival. © 2012 Tom Turner Photography
