Kelly Hale Mongol Derby


181% of Goal

They say everything’s bigger in Texas and that’s why this Texan’s lifelong mantra is, “Go big or go home.” Whether he’s competing at the National Reining Horse Association Futurity Finals, swinging his mallet on the polo field, breaking wild mustangs or leading fox hunts in the wild west, Kelly Hale is on top of his game when he’s on top of a horse. This lifelong equestrian recently pulled up his Texas roots and replanted in the wide-open spaces of Montana, the American state known for big sky views and ponies that roam free. Only Texas and Montana can contain this 100% red-blooded American cowboy. #halerider #hale4leather ABOUT THE DERBY: This is the 8th Mongol Derby, featured in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s longest and toughest horse race. The 2016 race features 21 men and 23 women from 13 countries riding 1000km across Mongolia on semi-wild horses. As well as serious riders from the worlds of eventing, show-jumping, endurance, racing, dressage, polo and rodeo, the 2016 line-up includes a family team, cancer survivors and those who have never ridden before. Some are in it to win it and some are in just because they can. Some are even coming back to finish it having not done so the first time around. As usual, we’re in for a ride…
