My husband and I took the Transiberian Railway as honeymoon trip this May. We stoped in Mongolia for only 4 days and contacted Keith for a 3 night ger stay and 1 night in Ulan Bator. Everything worked as planned: we were picked up at the train station by Davaa (who spoke very good English) and were driven (along with... More

Thanks for your excellent review, we'll pass that on to Yadmaa and Davasuren. You're right, it is an authentic herder family experience for anyone who wants to see the "real" Mongolia and not a commercial camp. It was a pleasure to arrange for you and we're pleased you liked it. More

From the off, Stone Horse hospitality, efficiency and actual expeditions are head and shoulders above anything similar in Mongolia. The staff know what they are doing and are interesting and good fun. They have horses for all riding experience levels; all have a sense of humour. The equipment (including the amazingly comfortable and beautiful handmade saddles) are second to none... More

Sarah, that was a good trip. We never get tired of the scenery and are always amazed by it's beauty. It's nice to share it with people who appreciate nature in its finest and great to have you along for the ride. More

This is the second time in 2 years that we are riding with Stone Horse (which just goes to show how much we enjoyed our trip last year!). We had the same horses as last year, and it was like meeting up with old friends again, from Keith and Sabine to Dolzoo, Byambaa, Byuanaa and our horses. My horse, Brownie,... More

It was great having you guys back for a second year and with the added adventure of nature pouring down on us and throwing up a few challenges to the horse travel. Now you're ready for the longer more challenging 14 Day Khentii Mountains trip. You have the experience and ability to ride anywhere now. More

We had a really wonderful time. The family was gracious and kind. No English spoken but we made do. The food was limited but tasty and wholesome. The setting was gorgeous, horseback riding was fun. I also got to milk cows and assist in the slaughtering of a sheep (don't let that put you off - they were discreet about... More

Thanks for your comments Laura. Yes, it is a real herder family ger stay and not a commercial ger camp. This is the way most people in the countryside live in contemporary Mongolia...dogs and all. As for the city guest house experience, as a company, this is one of our biggest headaches, finding guest houses that are within budget travelers... More

My mum and I recently finished an 8 day trek (in June) and we are already missing it! My mum has wanted to horse trek in Mongolia for almost 10 years so we were both a little nervous about it living up to our hopes and expectations, but in fact it surpassed them. We both have minimal riding experience but... More

You guys can come back anytime...and bring some friends. It was a pleasure having you along on that trip. Both you and your Mum were so relaxed around the horses making them easy and responsive. It was also great watching you two just have fun on Brownie and Little Big Man over the course of the trip. Hope to see... More

I just finished the July 1-10 Gorki-Terelj trip. It was an amazing trip. From the start Keith was great about answering all of my questions. Upon arrival, Keith met with us in UB to go over trip details. Keith had also provided a packing list which was very helpful. Listen to his recommendations! The horses are great and Keith and...

From start to finish, the Stone Horse Team were very efficient and responsive. They answered all my questions promptly with care and hospitality. Everything went to plan from being met at the airport, to a lovely hotel in Ulaanbaatar and a surprise visit to a Mongolian Theatre on the first night. I found SH by accident on the internet. I...

Glad to see you're back in Australia Nicki and fighting those fires. We've got a few more Aussies coming this way for our Autumn rides. They're preparing now, working those muscles to get them fit for some days in the saddle. I'll let Tseerd know you're thinking of him. More

I did a 2 day ger stay after attending the Naadam fesivities in Ulaanbatar on the first day. Keith and his team were very helpful not only arranging the family stay but also the accommodation in the city. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, and they went out of their way to make this trip a memorable one.

My partner and I aren't the most organised travellers, which was exacerbated by the limited travel info available on the internet for mongolia. I stumbled across stone horse and within 2 emails keith had organised our 5 day homestay in mongolia. Mind you, this was also 2 days prior to our arrival in ulanbataar. He organised us a great hometstay... More

How do I even begin describing this magical experience? We booked a 3 day Train to Ger programme because Keith offered what we felt was a fair price. Many other companies were charging prohibitive amounts because we were traveling in a pair. Anyway, our stay with Yadmaa and Davasuren was pure bliss. I felt like we were stripped down to... More

It was really nice having you out there. Davasuren was quite happy to have help with the livestock. Your archery skills may need some improvement though. Something to work on. Next time you're passing through on the train, stop by. The cows are waiting. More
