Cart & harness

The National Museum of Mongolia

When nomads are on the move horses, cows, yaks and camels can all be put to work to pull carts. The choice of animal depends largely on the geographical region. In the eastern part which consists entirely of steppes horses and cows are used; in the Gobi desert - camels; in the north-west of Mongolia yaks do the pulling.
The most essential equipment for a cart is the harness. The strap of the harness is fitted onto the back, and a pair of cart shafts is tied to the iron rings on both sides. The harness is made from felt and leather rope.
