| 2-week Volunteer and Horseback Riding Trip only 650 USD…|
Our Volunteering with Horseback Riding Trip offers participants the opportunity to explore Mongolian nomadic life, awe-inspiring a unique area of unsurpassed geographical and human diversity, with forest, desert, steppe and lakelands populated by over 15 distinct ethnic groups, while simultaneously making a much-needed, positive impact in the lives of the underprivileged children of Mongolia who live in orphanages and poorest ger (Mongolian felt tent) street that are resource poor and understaffed. During the program, you will stay with a warm and welcoming host family, where you will experience home away from home and immerse yourself in Mongolian culture.
The program starts with 12 days of volunteer work helping the deprived children after which you will join 2-day Horseback Riding Trip in Karakorum, ancient Mongolian capital.
Mongolia is one of the greatest lands of horseback riding tours and horseback trekking. There are more than 2.5 million horses in Mongolia.Horses are deeply embedded within Mongolia's culture; they are an indication of a man's wealth. The pace of life is governed by the speed of the horse and horses are woven into Mongolian song, verse and history. Infants are taught to ride before they walk, and a young man's prowess is measured by his skill as a horseman. Participants will also be treated to a one-day tour of the famous and wondrous city of Ulaanbaatar - experiencing the country through the eyes of its warm, hospitable people.
Compared to other International volunteer organizations, we offers incredibly competitive rates for our programs. The entire New Choice organization relies on volunteer contributions in order to stay alive, and attain our goals - empowering local communities.
New Choice offers not-for-profit program fees for fun, rewarding, safe and affordable volunteering opportunities in Mongolia. Whether you're planning a week helping a local community as you travel around a country, want to spend six months learning the local language or are putting your gap year to good use, New Choice has a program that will give you the best possible experience.
So why would you volunteer through New Choice, rather than another agency?

“New Choice officers explained me many things about life and customs as well as language. In the begin, it was quite difficult to get used to the cyrilic letter, the street names, the language, the food etc. However, in the second week I got used to it. Now back home, I will make my film about Mongolia. It will be great project for my college practice..”
