The 5-day Naadam Festival is related to the national holiday and represents the most important event in Mongolia. It is celebrated with competitions such as horse racing or wrestling in many places all over the country. Horse races - where jockeys are always children - start in one place and lead over tens of kilometres to the finish in another place.
