The Mongol Derby is the longest and toughest horse race in the world.
The 1000km course recreates Chinggis Khaan's legendary empire-busting postal system. Riders change horses every 40km and stay with the local herders or camp under the stars.
Every year 40 professional, semi-professional and enthusiastic amateur riders compete for the derby crown.
To stand a chance of finishing riders must balance survival skills and horsemanship. They must endure the elements, semi-wild horses as well as unfamiliar food and terrain.
Completing the World's longest horse race is an achievement few can boast.
There are five spots left on the 2017 Mongol Derby. If you think you have the mettle to take on the toughest horse race on the planet, apply now.
