Rough Magic: Riding the World’s Loneliest Horse Race through Lara Prior-Palmer
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.2MB | Retail
Overview: At the age of 19, Lara Prior-Palmer found out a web site dedicated to "the arena’s longest, hardest horse race"-an annual festival of staying power and ability that comes to dozens of riders racing a sequence of twenty-five wild ponies throughout 1,000 kilometers of Mongolian grassland. On a whim, she determined to go into the race. As she boarded a aircraft to East Asia, she was once completely unprepared for what awaited her.
Riders ceaselessly spend years making ready to compete within the Mongol Derby, a path that recreates the pony messenger machine advanced through Genghis Khan, and lots of fail to complete. Prior-Palmer had no formal coaching. She was once pushed through her personal restlessness, stubbornness, and a lifelong love of horses. She raced for ten days thru excessive warmth and terrifying storms, catching a couple of hours of sleep the place she may on the properties of nomadic households. Battling bouts of sickness and dehydration, exhaustion and bruising falls, she determined she had not anything to lose. Each crack of dawn she rode out once more on a contemporary horse, scrambling up mountains, swimming thru rivers, crossing woodlands and wetlands, arid dunes and open steppe, as American tv crews chased her of their Jeeps.
