Daniel Miller Gobi Galloper 2021 Making a Difference One Child at a Time
Many of you who know me are aware that I used to work as a cowboy in Montana and Wyoming in the American West and that I also lived and worked in Mongolia. I have been around horses most of my life, have ridden horses in Nepal and Tibet, and even had a cowboy saddle custom-made to use in Mongolia. After spending most of the last 35 years living and working overseas (including Mongolia), I now have more time to pursue some things I have always been interested in doing. I am pleased to report that after a rigorous screening process I have been accepted to ride in the Gobi Gallop in Mongolia in June 2021.
The Gobi Gallop is a horseback adventure that covers about 435 miles (700 kilometers) in ten days to raise money for a charity in Mongolia. This charity builds and maintains schools for less fortunate families in Mongolia. In 2021, the Gobi Gallop takes place on the steppes of Eastern Mongolia where we will ride for 40-50 miles a day. Imagine riding from Sheridan, Wyoming to Denver, Colorado, and never having to come across a fence! For a former cowboy it doesn't get much better. This is some of the last un-fenced rangeland in the world and the best way to see it is on horseback!
I have to raise $3500 as my contribution to the charity that provides assistance for children and their families. Help me out and donate as much as you can through the link on this page.
Trained as a rangeland ecologist, I plan to document the Mongolian steppe environment and the condition of the rangeland that we will be riding across. I will also be talking to herders we meet along the ride to better understand the challenges they are currently facing with raising livestock as well as gaining insight into their traditional practices and knowledge about Mongolian horses and livestock.
HUGE thanks to my wonderful friends and supporters! So far I've already raised
