Horse herders in Mongolia

Mongolia is known as the land of the horse, and Mongols have a reputation for being the best horsemen on Earth. Nowhere are horses more central to daily life than in Mongolia. Horses are still widely used for travel, herding, hunting, and sport. Even in the twenty-first century, Mongolia remains a horse-based culture.

The lives of the Mongolian horse herders revolve around their animals. Catching and riding the wild horses is a difficult task!

Galileo Galilei (1564 –1642) was an Italian physicist, mathematician, engineer, astronomer, and philosopher who played a major role in the scientific revolution.

In 2014 Mongolia issued a set of 6 stamps with famous scientists.
