Children of Genghis

The Mongolian people from long ago have had a tradition of three cultural games that have always been around during the time of festivities. Mongolian wrestling, racing horses and archery were among the three traditional games. This story will focus on the horse racing tradition. The town's best horse race trainer Bold, has many people gathered at his house for a special announcement. Bold begins to brag about his horses and skills and how no one in town is better than him. Bold begins to talk about his most prized horse, the brown steed that still has yet to find its rider. After hearing this the townspeople recommend Dambii's eldest son Dorj to be the rider. Upon hearing this Bold decides to ask Dambii's son Dorj to be the rider for his horse.
