Mongol Horsemen performing at ‘The Ma Park’- JTO Online SNS Supporters

There are many famous symbols in Jeju, but one of the most essential symbol is the horse. History states that one of the reasons why Mongolians invaded Jeju was because of its great environment. It was a grazing pasture for the empire’s horses, which is why even till this day, horses are seen everywhere and also horseback rides for tourists.

This time our JTO Online SNS Supporters visited the ‘The Ma Park.’ It is a place to experience equestrian, but also have equestrian performances for the entertainment of tourists.

This equestrian performance is extra special because the performers came from Mongolia. They are masters in equestrian!
