A Little Bit Mongolian
A pack of children on small sturdy horses gallop at full tilt across the northern Mongolian steppe. In the thick of the action is a lone foreigner. His name is Angus Paradice  He is 12 years old and he’s from Australia.

A year ago Angus went to Mongolia on a family vacation . He watched with envy as local children galloped across the wild empty grasslands.   Back home in Australia, he started training, riding 25kms home from school each day. And now he is back in Mongolia. He must find a trainer willing to take him on. He must learn new skills. He must find the courage within himself to become the first foreign boy ever to compete in the big Nadaam Festival horse races.

This is the heart-warming story of one boy’s determination to make his dream come true.
