Social Responsibility


Members of the Federation of Mongolian Horse Racing Sport and Trainers are well aware of our social responsibility. We hope to extend our helping hands to those in need. With most kindness we handed out free coveralls for jockeys during the “Mongolian Trainers-3000” meeting and as a gratification for “Ikh-Khurd 6” race, we presented 6 snow-white gers (Mongolian traditional dwelling) to 6 families who were below the average living standards in the Uvurkhangai province. In addition, we organised and funded the national song competition, financially helped our 6 members with grave illness and who are living below the average standards as well as to 2 families that lost their and our dear trainers . Finally, we emotionally and materially aided to the 2 jockeys’ who have been injured during regional racings.
              

Asian Racing Federation Award "The Golden Horse"


The Golden Horse award is pioneered by the Federation of Mongolian Horse Racing Sport and Trainers in 2010 in order to award the organization and the person who has devoted his entire soul, body and mind to develop horse racing of Asian Racing Federation.

The Golden Horse award is a unique creation done by Mongolian craftsman that has green jade base with symbol of Asian Racing Federation imprinted on it. The most eye catching part of the award is gold plated silver horse and the Golden Gerege. The silver horse is one of the ancient discoveries of 2000 BC (Hunnu) period and the Golden Gerege was granted to delegates and ambassadors as a sign of their own kind by ancient Mongol Emperors. In addition, the medal of the Golden Horse award is formed with pure silver and with golden crafted horse. This Award is the most dignified and supreme horse award without a doubt.
