NEAR ARBURD SANDS CAMP, MONGOLIA

Thank you 🔷 @theworldbyhorseback 🔷 / Maria Nordvall from Gothenburg, Sweden,  for taking us along on her trip through the Mongolian steppe and Gobi Desert. Check out her Instagram gallery for more beautiful photos that include camels, wild horses, and goats.
Mongolia is a landlocked country in Central Asia and East Asia, located between China and Russia. The terrain is one of mountains and rolling plateaus, with a high degree of relief. The total land area of Mongolia is 1,564,116 square kilometres. Overall, the land slopes from the high Altay Mountains of the west and the north to plains and depressions in the east and the south. The Khüiten Peak in extreme western Mongolia on the Chinese border is the highest point (4,374 metres). The lowest is 518 metres, an otherwise undistinguished spot in the eastern Mongolian plain. The country has an average elevation of 1,580 metres. The landscape includes one of Asia's largest freshwater lakes (Lake Khövsgöl), many salt lakes, marshes, sand dunes, rolling grasslands, alpine forests, and permanent mountain glaciers. Northern and western Mongolia are seismically active zones, with frequent earthquakes and many hot springs and extinct volcanoes. The nation's closest point to any ocean is approximately 645 kilometres (401 mi) from the country's easternmost tip bordering northern China to Jinzhou in Liaoning province, China along the coastline of the Bohai Sea.

VERACRUZ, 🇲🇽 GULF OF MEXICO

Thank you 🔷 @greciasv 🔷 for taking us to Punta Delgada, in Veracruz. When the Spanish explorer Hernán Cortés arrived in Mexico in 1519, he founded a city here, which he named Villa Rica de la Vera Cruz, referring to the area’s gold and dedicated to the "True Cross", because he landed on the Christian holy day of Good Friday, the day of the Crucifixion. It was the second Spanish settlement on the mainland of the Americas but the first to receive a coat-of-arms. During the colonial period, this city had the largest mercantile class and was at times wealthier than the capital of Mexico City. Its wealth attracted the raids of 17th-century pirates, against which fortifications such as Fort San Juan de Ulúa were built. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Veracruz was invaded on different occasions by France and the United States; during the 1914 Tampico Affair, US troops occupied the city for seven months. For much of the 20th century, the production of petroleum was most important for the state's economy but, in the latter 20th century and into the 21st, the port has re-emerged as the main economic engine. It has become the principal port for most of Mexico’s imports and exports, especially for the automotive industry.

WIND RIVER RANGE, WYOMING

Thanks to 🔷 @alixcritt 🔷 Alix Crittenden of @sleepingindianoutfitters for taking us 13,809 feet up to the Wind River Range in the Rocky Mountains.  The Wind River Range encompasses an area of 2.25 million acres and forms a triple divide for three major western watersheds: the Columbia River, the Colorado River, and the Missouri. The Winds are the most popular section of the Bridger Wilderness of western Wyoming. This rugged piece of the Rocky Mountains, extending for approximately 80 miles along the western slope of the Continental Divide, contains a unique combination of jagged granite rock, alpine forest, and open alpine meadows. Serving as the headwaters for the mighty Green River, this wilderness holds 7 of the 10 largest glaciers in the Lower 48, more than 2,300 crystalline lakesand ponds, and numerous glacier-carved cirques, kettles, valleys, and hanging troughs.  Season  The high country typically opens up around mid-July and remains open through mid-September. Snow can occur at any time, however, and visitors should be prepared for the possibility of subfreezing daytime and night temperatures even in the summer. Afternoon thunderstorms, with lightning and rain showers, are common during the summer, and some of the peaks hold snow all year.

ONTARIO, 🇨🇦 CANADA

Thanks to 🔷 @casswies 🔷 at Wood View Stables, emphasis on the word view, about 45 minutes west of Toronto. The Niagara Escarpment is a long escarpment-- ( a steep slope or long cliff that forms as an effect of faulting or erosion and separates two relatively level areas of differing elevations -- in the United States and Canada that runs predominantly east/west from New York State, through Ontario, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois. It is composed of the Lockport geological formation of Silurian age, and is similar to the Onondaga geological formation, which runs parallel to it and just to the south, through western New York and southern Ontario. The escarpment is most famous as the cliff over which the Niagara River plunges at Niagara Falls, for which it is named.  Designated a UNESCO World Biosphere,Reserve in 1990, the Niagara Escarpment is an internationally recognized landform and is the cornerstone of Ontario’s Greenbelt. A landscape of rich biodiversity, home to hundreds of Ontario's Species at Risk, vital watersheds, agricultural areas and 450-million year old geological history, the Niagara Escarpment is a treasure to protect for future generations.  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niagara_Escarpment  http://www.escarpment.org/home/index.php  Tag your photo #lifebetweentheears for a chance to be featured.

CANNON BEACH, HAYSTACK ROCK 🇺🇸 US


Big thanks to my pal 🔷 Ellen Felsenthal of @newmoonfarmgoatrescue 🔷 for taking us to the Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock on the Oregon coast aboard her lovely tobiano mare, Eclipse. If I remember correctly, she bought Eclipse from a horse auction as a filly for $15/pound. Now she presides as the boss mare of New Moon Goat Rescue and Sanctuary up in Arlington, Washington, where she lives with several other rescue horses, and 50+ rescue goats. Be sure and mark your calendar for early July next year for their annual fundraising event: The Goat Olympics!  And check out Ellen's site for hilarious photos of the shenanigans.🎖🐐🎖
http://www.goatalympics.org/
http://newmoonfarm.org/

Haystack Rock is a 235-foot (72-meter) sea stack in Cannon Beach, Oregon. It is sometimes claimed locally to be the third-tallest such "intertidal" (meaning it can be reached by land) structure in the world, but there are no official references to support this. A popular tourist destination, the monolithic rock is adjacent to the beach and accessible by foot at low tide. The Haystack Rock tide pools are home to many intertidal animals, including starfish, sea anemone, crabs, chitons, limpets, and sea slugs. The rock is also a nesting site for many sea birds, including terns and puffins.

LAKE ERIE, WAINFLEET, ONTARIO 🇨🇦CANDA

LAKE ERIE, WAINFLEET, ONTARIO 🇨🇦CANDA

Thanks to 🔷@maybedeathisagift 🔷 for this windswept beauty from Lake Erie! 🌊💨🐴 Lake Erie is the fourth largest lake (by surface area) of the five Great Lakes in North America, and the thirteenth largest globally if measured in terms of surface area. It is the southernmost, shallowest, and smallest by volume of the Great Lakes and therefore also has the shortest average water residence time. At its deepest point Lake Erie is 210 feet (64 metres) deep. Lake Erie's northern shore is bounded by the Canadian province of Ontario, with the US states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York on its southern and easternmost shores and Michigan on the west. These jurisdictions divide the surface area of the lake by water boundaries. The lake was named by the Erie tribe of Native Americans who lived along its southern shore. That Iroquoian tribe called it "Erige" ("cat") because of its unpredictable and sometimes violently dangerous nature. It is a matter of conjecture whether the lake was named after the tribe, or if the tribe was called "Erie" because of its proximity to the lake.

The Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet New Kingdom: 20th Dynasty; 1184-1153 BCE,  is an important New Kingdom period structure in the West Bank of Luxor in Egypt. Aside from its size and architectural and artistic importance, the temple is probably best known as the source of inscribed reliefs depicting the advent and defeat of the Sea Peoples during the reign of Ramesses III.

KISBÉR-HÁNTA., 🇭🇺 HUNGARY

Thanks to 🔷 @szendepende🔷 and her Arabian, for taking us to Kisbér, Hungary.

Kisbér has been inhabited since the prehistoric age. Today about 8000 people live here - it is the capital of the Bakony foothill. The Rákóczi's Insurrection and the Napoleonic wars played an important role in its history. Its reputation is due to its horsebreed which is famous all over the world. The Battyány family developed a model-farm. In 1830 they had started the breeding of the English thoroughbred and not much later they established here a military studfarm. Later on this studfarm became a state property. The names of Kincsem, Imperial, Kisbér and other race-horses are known all over the world. The buildings of the stud farm have been declared historic monuments, the most notable among them - the Royal Riding Hall.

JUTLAND 🇩🇰 DENMARK

Thanks to 🔷 @ltroldborg🔷 / Lisset Troldborg for taking us to the Jutland Peninsula, in Denmark. Although she is aboard an Icelandic, researching the area I discovered the Jutland horse breed.

The Jutland Horse

The Jutland horse can be traced back to the 12th century, although 9th century pictures of Danish warriors show them riding horses which appear quite similar to the modern Jutland. The Jutland was used not only in a draft horse capacity, but was also a popular mount for the knights of medieval times. They had both the strength and the stamina to excel at carrying the heavy armor, although now they are not commonly used as riding horses. There is a theory that the Vikings took Danish horses into England and that the Suffolk Punch developed from these, and there are certainly similarities between the modern Jutland and the Suffolk. During the 18th century, Fredericksborg blood was introduced to the breed which was responsible for improving their paces.

The Jutland is also believed to have Cleveland Bay and Yorkshire Coach Horse blood, which is the combination that gives rise to its heavy, but attractive, draft appearance. The Jutland is closely related to the Schleswig Heavy draft horse of North Germany, which can also be traced back to Oppenheim.
