(Upbeat music plays)

Horses run together.

Camille Ucan says, A WEEK TO BEAT THE
WORLD
IS IN MONGOLIA AND I CAN
HONESTLY SAY, THIS IS THE MOST
BANGING, BRILLIANT SHOW ON THE
BLOCK.

Camille kneels beside a horse.

She says, THINK I'M MILKING IT?
I LITERALLY AM, THIS IS A HORSE.
I'M MILKING A HORSE!
WELCOME TO THE SHOW!

Camille milks the horse.

(Horse whinnies)

Camille says, SORRY!

Karim Zeroual narrates, THESE KIDS ARE LITERALLY AT
THE TOP OF THEIR GAME.

Text reads, BBC. Different kids take part in a variety of athletic activities including gymnastics, rugby and boxing.

Camille narrates, THEY'RE SOME OF THE
FASTEST, STRONGEST, MOST
SPORTINGEST KIDS IN THE
COUNTRY.

A girl rides a horse. A boy throws a football.

Karim narrates, RUGBY.

A boy runs with a rugby ball. Text reads, Franc, 13. On a track, a girl runs with an athletic parachute. Text reads, Alesha, 15.

Karim narrates, ATHLETICS,
AMERICAN FOOTBALL...

A boy starts to throw a football and gets tackled. Text reads, Reef, 14. A girl trains with boxing gloves. Text reads, Jocelyn, 12.

Camille narrates, BOXING, GYMNASTICS…

A boy does multiple flips. Text reads, Sol, 12.

Camille narrates, …HORSE-RIDING, AND RUNNING.

A girl rides a horse as it jumps over a bar. Text reads, Neisha, 14. Neisha runs through a field.

Karim narrates, AND THEY'RE TAKING THEIR
SKILLS ACROSS THE WORLD.

Karim stands on a beach. He has black, curly hair. Text over different cities rapidly changes as the cities change. The text reads, Brazil, Kenya, Mongolia, Malaysia, Guatemala, Japan.

Karim narrates, I'VE GOT THE BOYS TEAM.

The boys team watches two Sumo wrestlers wrestle.

Camille says, AND I'VE GOT THE GIRLS.

Camille walks with the girls team through a busy market at night.

Camille says, GET HIM, ALESHA!

Alesha fights a person using long sticks.

Karim narrates, AND THEY'RE TRAVELLING...

One of the boys says, VAMOS!

Camille narrates, ...TO THE FURTHEST CORNERS OF
THE EARTH TO TEST THEIR
SPORTING SKILLS AGAINST LOCALS.

Karim narrates, AND COMPETING IN
SPORTS THEY'VE NEVER DREAMED OF
TRYING.

Sol gets kicked in the head.

One of the boys says, I'VE NEVER SEEN A SPORT
LIKE IT.

Karim narrates, HOW WILL THEY MEASURE UP
WITH JUST A WEEK TO BEAT THE
WORLD?

A person says, GO, GO, GO, GO, GO.

Neisha quickly carries a tray of drinks through a busy market.

Camille says, THE GIRLS HAVE GOT THIS.

Karim says, NO WAY!
THE BOYS HAVE GOT THIS!

Camille and the girls and a few others put their hands in the centre of a circle. They throw their hands up and cheer. Elsewhere Karim and the boys do the same.

One of the boys says, LET'S GO!

An animated pink Earth with yellow continents rotates and bounces. Text over the Earth reads, A Week to Beat the World.

Karim narrates, MONGOLIA.
EAST ASIA.
YESTERDAY, THE GIRLS' TEAM OF
SHOW JUMPER, NEISHA, SPRINTER,
ALESHA, AND BOXER, JOCELYN,
GOT THEIR FIRST EXPERIENCE OF
NOMAD LIFE.

Alesha has long blond hair. Neisha has long, light brown hair. Jocelyn has long, light brown hair. The girls walk together.

Karim narrates, EMBEDDED FOR THE WEEK IN THIS,
THEIR COLD, SPARSE TRAINING
GROUND, THEY SAW CRAZY
HORSEMANSHIP SKILLS...

A man hangs upside down on the side of a horse.

The girls say, WHOA!

Alesha says, I WASN'T EXPECTING THIS.

Karim narrates, THEY WERE GIVEN A
TRADITIONAL MONGOLIAN WELCOME BY
THEIR HOST FAMILY.

A man splits a cooked sheep’s head open.

Camille says, OOH.

Karim narrates AND MET A SLIGHTLY
TERRIFYING TOILET.

Three walls are built with logs around a hole in the ground.

Alesha says, IMAGINE FALLING IN THAT.

Jocelyn and Neisha say, UGH.

Karim narrates, AT THE END OF THE
WEEK, THE GIRLS ARE COMPETING
AGAINST THE LOCALS, IN A MULTI-
SKILLED RACE FEATURING
TRADITIONAL NOMAD SPORTS.

Neisha rides a running horse.

Camille says, WHOO!

(Cheering)

Camille whispers, OH, I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS!

Karim narrates, TODAY, HEAD COACH
GESER HAS PLANNED AN INTENSE DAY
OF RIDING LESSONS.

A black and white cat sits on top of a Ger.

Karim narrates, SO HE AND CAMILLE ARE BRAVING
THE FREEZING COLD DAWN TO GET
THE GIRLS UP SUPER EARLY.

Camille knocks on the door of the Ger.

She says, WAKEY-WAKEY, RISE AND SHINE!

Camille opens the door. She and Geser peak inside.

Camille says, HELLO!

Camille steps inside. Geser follows.

Camille asks, DID YOU SLEEP WELL, JOCELYN?

Jocelyn says, YEAH.

Jocelyn and Neisha sleep on cots.

Camille says, COME ON, LOOK LIVELY!
ALESHA, HOW ARE YOU THIS
MORNING?

Alesha sleeps on a bed with a coat over her.

She says, COLD.

Geser speaks Mongolian. A person translates for him.

Geser says, TODAY IS A
BIG DAY FOR YOU.
I WANT YOU UP AND DRESSED IN 10
MINUTES, READY TO START YOUR
FIRST HORSE-RIDING LESSON.

Camille steps out of the Ger. Geser follows her.

Camille says, I KNOW IT'S MEAN BUT I
LOVED THAT.

Neisha asks, WERE YOU COLD IN THE NIGHT?

Jocelyn says, YEAH.

Alesha says, I WAS FREEZING.
LAST NIGHT I LIKE GOT UP, THEN
I LEANED BACK DOWN, LIKE MISSED
MY BED, SO MY HEAD WAS LIKE,
DOWN THERE.

Neisha laughs.

Karim narrates, IF SHE'S FALLING OFF
HER NON-MOVING BED, HOW IS SHE
GONNA GET ON A HORSE?

Camille says, COME ON, GIRLS!

Outside, the girls wear riding gear.

Karim narrates, AS QUICKLY AS THEY
CAN, THE GIRLS LEAVE THEIR
CHILLY GER.

Camille says, GIDDY UP!

Karim narrates, READY FOR THEIR FIRST
TRAINING SESSION.

Geser speaks Mongolian. A person translates for him.

Geser says, TODAY WE'RE GOING
TO LEARN ABOUT THE DIFFERENCES
BETWEEN MONGOLIAN HORSES AND
WESTERN HORSES.

Neisha nods.

Geser says, MONGOLIAN HORSES ARE USUALLY
ALLOWED TO RUN FREE, SO YOU
COULD SAY THEY'RE SEMI-WILD.

Camille says, WHICH BRINGS ME ON TO MY NEXT
POINT ABOUT THE HORSE WE ARE
GOING TO BE TRAINING WITH THIS
MORNING.
AS YOU'VE HEARD, THEY'RE PRETTY
WILD, PRETTY FEISTY, AND THIS
HORSE, I WOULD SAY, IS THE
FEISTIEST OF THE LOT.
HE'S CALLED WOODY.
HE'S NOT IN HERE, HE'S OVER
THERE BECAUSE HE IS SO WILD.

Camille points away from where the other horses are kept in a fenced area. Bilguun stands by a saddle.

(Dramatic music plays)

Karim narrates, BILGUUN IS THE ONLY
ONE BRAVE ENOUGH TO SADDLE UP
WILD WOODY.

Text reads, Bilgunn, age 14.

Camille says, IF YOU CAN MASTER RIDING
WOODY, YOU CAN RIDE ANY HORSE
IN MONGOLIA.
THIS IS WOODY!

Camille points to Bilgunn who sits on a saddle on a wooden horse. The girls laugh. A horse neighs.

Alesha says, I WAS PRETTY RELIEVED.
I WASN'T EXPECTING THAT AT ALL
TO BE THAT LITTLE WOODEN HORSE.

A person translates for Geser.

Geser says, TO APPROACH A
MONGOLIAN HORSE, ALWAYS COME
FROM THE HEAD END, NEVER FROM
THE SIDE.
THE HORSE MIGHT KICK YOU
OR BITE YOU.

Jocelyn says, WHEN GESER TOLD US THAT IF
WE DO LIKE, THE SLIGHTEST THING
WRONG, THE HORSE MIGHT KICK US
OR BITE US, I GOT QUITE SCARED.

Alesha approaches the wooden horse from the side.

Geser says, YOU APPROACHED IT
FROM THE SIDE.

Alesha says, UH-OH.

Geser pulls Alesha around to the front of the wooden horse.

(Laughter)

Alesha says, THE FIRST TIME I DID IT,
I WALKED, LIKE, IN THE WRONG
DIRECTION, SO YEAH, THAT WAS A
BIT SCARY.

Karim narrates, NOT A GREAT START FOR
ALESHA, ONE INSTRUCTION AND SHE
GOT THAT WRONG.

Alesha stands on a track.

Karim narrates, ALESHA IS A TOP SPRINTER WHOSE
POWER COMES FROM HER LEGS.
BUT THIS IS ABOUT PRECISION,
NOT PACE.

Alesha races down a track. In Magnolia, she climbs onto the wooden horse.

Camille says, YES, SHE'S ON WOODY!

A person translates for Geser.

Geser says, STAND UP ON THE
STIRRUPS.

Neisha practices standing on the stirrups of the wooden horse.

Camille says, BEAUTIFUL.

Jocelyn struggles to get on the horse with one foot in the stirrup.

She says, NOW MY FOOT'S STUCK.

Camille laughs. Jocelyn stands in a boxing ring.

Karim narrates, JOCELYN IS A BOXER,
SO IS USUALLY PRETTY GOOD AT
FOOTWORK.
GETTING THOSE FEET OUT OF THOSE
STIRRUPS SEEMS TO BE A DIFFERENT
MATTER.

A person translates for Geser.

Geser says, HOLD THE REIGNS
TIGHTLY, LIKE THIS.
BOTH ROPES TOGETHER.

On the wooden horse, Neisha holds the ropes together with both her hands.

Camille asks, IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE USED TO,
NEISHA, OR DO YOU NORMALLY HAVE
TWO HANDS?

Neisha says, NO, WE NORMALLY HOLD IT LIKE
THIS.

Camille says, OH, REALLY.

Neisha says, YEAH.

Neisha holds the rope separately in each of her hands.

Karim narrates, AS A TOP SHOWJUMPER,
NEISHA IS NO STRANGER TO HORSES
BUT THE MONGOLIAN RIDING STYLE
MEANS THIS IS BACK TO THE
START FOR ALL THREE OF THEM.

Neisha rides a horse over a bar.

Neisha says, I DO FEEL A BIT LIKE
A BEGINNER ALL OVER AGAIN,
BECAUSE THE WAY YOU HOLD THE
REIGNS IS ALL, LIKE, DIFFERENT
SO I WAS QUITE SURPRISED.

Karim narrates, WITH ONE DAY OF THEIR
WEEK ALREADY OVER, TRAINING
NEEDS TO CONTINUE, BECAUSE THE
GIRLS HAVE A SERIOUS MOUNTAIN TO
CLIMB TO GET CLOSE TO MONGOLIAN
STANDARDS, SO GESER KEEPS
PUSHING THEM.

Geser adjusts the saddle on the wooden horse and Alesha nearly falls off.

She says, OH!

(Laughing)

Camille sighs.

She says, LET'S SEE WHAT HE'S
GOT TO SAY TODAY.

Camille pulls out her phone.

She says, COME ON, KARIM.

A video of Karim plays on her phone.

In the video, Karim says, I'M GLAD YOU ARE ENJOYING
KICKING IT WITH THE GEE-GEES.
HORSES ARE QUITE A BIG DEAL IN
MONGOLIA.

Camille says, YEAH.

Karim says, AND THEY'RE NOT JUST USED
FOR RIDING, YOU KNOW.
LOCAL FARMERS KEEP HERDS OF THEM
FOR THEIR MEAT, LEATHER AND
MILK.

Camille looks surprised.

Karim says, SO, GANTUMUR AND BILGUUN WANT YOU
TO YOU TO MILK A MARE.

Karim laughs.

He says, GOOD LUCK!
DON'T HAVE A MARE.

Camille says, YOU MILK HORSES?!
HORSES DON'T GET MILKED.
DO THEY HAVE UDDERS?

Karim narrates, "UH, DER!"
YEAH, THEY DO.
OYUNA AND GANTUMUR HAVE 25
HORSES AS PART OF THEIR ANIMAL
KINGDOM.
THEY USE HORSE MILK TO MAKE
THEIR FAVOURITE LOCAL DRINK
CALLED "AIRAG," SO DON'T LOSE
YOUR RAG, CAMILLE.

Camille says, I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE THEY
MILK HORSES!

A person milks a horse.

Camille says, AYUNA, HOW DO YOU DO IT?

Ayuna sits beside a horse she milks. She speaks in Mongolian. A person translates for her.

Ayuna says, THERE ARE TWO
NIPPLES AND WE SQUEEZE THEM,
ONE BY ONE, LIKE THIS.

Ayuna demonstrates how she milks the horse.

Camille says, OKAY.

(Exciting music plays)

Karim narrates, WITH CAMILLE GETTING A
BIOLOGY LESSON, GESER HAS
ANOTHER PLAN, TO SHOW THE GIRLS
HOW MUCH OF A MOUNTAIN THEY HAVE
TO CLIMB.

Geser demonstrates different twists and tricks on the wooden horse.

A person sings, HEY!.

Karim narrates, MONGOLIANS TAKE HORSE RIDING TO
THE EXTREME WITH AMAZING MOVES
THEY USE AS A GREETING.

A man slides off a horse mid run so that his feet just touch the ground. He bounces off the ground and pulls himself back up onto the horse.

Karim narrates, THIS LOOKS SO DANGEROUS.

Geser speaks Mongolian as leans back on the wooden horse with one foot in the air. He swings that foot back around the saddle but kicks the wooden horse’s head off. Jocelyn laughs.

She says, HE'S JUST KILLED THE
HORSE.

Karim says, OH, WELL AT LEAST NOW
HE'S BEHEADED THE HORSE, IT
WON'T BITE THEM.

Geser says, SOPPA!

Alesha tries to flip her leg over the wooden horse but doesn’t quite make it. Jocelyn and Neisha giggle. Alesha laughs.

Jocelyn says, GOOD LUCK DOING THAT ON A
HORSE.
WHILST MOVING!
WAS IT REALLY HARD?

Alesha says, YEAH!

Jocelyn sits on the wooden horse. Geser speaks Mongolian. A person translates for him.

Geser says, STRAIGHTEN YOUR
KNEE AND LEAN ON YOUR SADDLE.

Jocelyn leans against the saddle as she balances with one foot in a stirrup and puts one hand up.

(Laughing)

Neisha sits on the wooden horse.

Geser says, I'LL THROW YOUR LEG AND YOU
SWING IT OVER YOUR HORSE.

In English, Geser counts, ONE, TWO, THREE.

Neisha lifts herself as Geser helps her swing her leg over the wooden horse and she leans against it.

Geser says, OKAY!

Jocelyn says, I CAN JUST ABOUT STAY ON THE
HORSE WHILST IT'S RUNNING.

Karim narrates, THIS MIGHT BE A STEP
TOO FAR FOR ALESHA AND JOCELYN,
BUT NEISHA SEEMS TO HAVE IT
DOWN.

Neisha practices swinging her leg over the horse and balancing against it. She puts her hand in the air like Geser had demonstrated.

In English, Geser says, OKAY, NICE, NICE!

Karim narrates, MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE
REAL HORSES, IT'S TIME FOR
CAMILLE TO GET HER HANDS MILKY.

Camille says, I'M A BIT SCARED IT'S GONNA
KICK ME.

Camille kneels beside the horse. She looks nervous. Camille puts a bucket under the horse. Oyuna stands beside her, helping.

She says, OH, OH, IT FEELS FUNNY!
SO I CAN GO LIKE THAT?
TWO HANDS... OH.

Camille tries milking the horse.

She says, OH, THAT FEELS ALL RIGHT.

Karim narrates, I MEAN, NOTHING IS
ACTUALLY HAPPENING.

Camille says, I'M NOT-- OH, HE JUDDERED.
OH, HANG ON A MINUTE!

Oyuna milks the horse.

Camille says, WHY IS IT COMING OUT WHEN YOU DO
IT AND NOT WHEN I DO IT?

Karim narrates, OH, I DON'T KNOW,
MAYBE 40 YEARS OF PRACTICE?

Camille tries again.

She says, OH, A BIT CAME OUT!
DID YOU SEE THAT?
I GOT IT, YEAH!
IT'S COMING OUT, WELL DONE.
I'M MILKING A HORSE!

Karim narrates, DONE ALREADY?
WITH TWO SQUIRTS, THE GIRLS
AREN'T GOING TO BE HAVING A NICE
HORSE LATTE TODAY, ARE THEY?

Camille says, THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME
DO THAT.

Camille hugs Oyuna.

Camille says, THANK YOU, THAT WAS AMAZING.

(Cheery music)

People play tug-of-war.

(Cheering)

(Shouting)

Karim narrates, STILL, THE GIRLS ARE
AT LEAST ENJOYING A BRIEF BREAK
FROM TRAINING.

The girls play cards.

Jocelyn says, TWO MEANS YOU HAVE TO PICK
UP TWO.

Camille comes running into the girls Gers

She says, GUYS, GUYS, GUYS, GUYS, GUYS.

Karim narrates, CORRECTION, THE GIRLS
WERE ENJOYING A BREAK.
SOMEONE HASN'T SPENT ALL MORNING
TRAINING.

Camille says, I'VE JUST SEEN THEM DOING THE
MOST INCREDIBLE THING OUTSIDE!
I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE
IT.
TWO TEAMS, ONE ON EACH END OF
THE ROPE AND THEN BOTH TEAMS ARE
LIKE, PULLING ON THE ROPE.
AND THEN ONE TEAM HAS TO GET THE
OTHER TEAM OVER THE MIDDLE LINE
AND THEN THEY'RE THE WINNERS.

Neisha asks, TUG OF WAR?

Camille says, THEY CALL IT "OSTERTOL."

Camille looks confused.

She says, RIGHT, WELL, FINE, LET'S GO PLAY
OSTERTOL.

The girls laugh and stand.

Karim narrates, TUG OF WAR, OR
OSTERTOL, HAS A STRONG TRADITION
FOR NOMADS.
IT'S PLAYED AT THE INTERNATIONAL
NOMAD GAMES, AND THERE'S EVEN A
VERSION ON HORSEBACK.

Camille says, GESER, WE'RE READY TO PLAY
OSTERTOL.
CAN YOU HELP US PLAY?
WE NEED TO GET INTO TEAMS?
SHALL WE DO BRITS VERSUS
MONGOLS?

Karim narrates, BOLD MOVE, CAMILLE.

Geser speaks Mongolian. A person translates for him.

Geser says, OF COURSE, LET'S
PLAY.
YOU GO THIS SIDE.

Camille says, OKAY,

Neisha says, THE WINNING SIDE.

Camille says, NICE, FIGHTING TALK, NEISHA.
I'LL GO AT THE BACK, YOU GO IN
FRONT OF ME.

Alesha says, OKAY.

Camille says, AND THEN YOU TWO, YEAH.
IS HE TYING IT ROUND HIMSELF?

The girls say, YEAH.

Geser wraps his end of the rope around himself.

Camille says, OKAY FINE, YEAH, OKAY, I CAN
TIE IT ROUND MYSELF.
I SEE YOU, GESER!
TWO CAN PLAY THAT GAME.

Camille ties the end of the rope around herself.

She says, HANG ON, HOW MANY HAVE THEY GOT
ON THEIR TEAM?
WE'VE ONLY GOT FOUR.

Jocelyn says, FOUR OF THEM ARE
ONLY THREE.

Alesha says, YEAH, BUT LIKE,
COMBINE THEIR AGES.

Camille says, YEAH, I THINK WE NEED TO
STEAL ONE.

Jocelyn says, YEAH, RIGHT.

Jocelyn goes over to Geser’s team.

She asks, DO YOU WANT TO COME AND JOIN
OUR TEAM?

Bilgunn points to himself and Jocelyn nods.

Karim narrates, THE GAME'S NOT EVEN
STARTED, AND ALREADY THEY'RE
GETTING COMPETITIVE, MAKING SURE
THERE'S NO DISADVANTAGE.

A woman standing at the middle of the rope shouts in Mongolian. The two teams start tugging.

Karim narrates, AND THEY'RE OFF.
NOT A BAD START FROM THE GIRLS'
TEAM, ALTHOUGH BILGUUN HAS
FALLEN OVER.
AH, THEY'RE ALL FALLING OVER.

Geser is nearly sitting on the ground.

Karim narrates, TO BE HONEST, I THINK
GESER COULD PROBABLY WIN THIS ON
HIS OWN.

Camille says, PULL, PULL!

Karim narrates, THE GIRLS AREN'T GIVING UP
THOUGH, GESERS' GOT THEM.
THEY'RE PULLING BACK THOUGH,
THEY'RE GONNA WIN!

The crowd watching the game grins.

Karim narrates, OH NO, GESER'S PUTTING
IN A FINAL PULL!

Camille says, OH NO, I'M SORRY, ALESHA!

Camille bumps unto Alesha.

Karim narrates, THIS IS REALLY TENSE.
HE'S GOT THEM, HE'S GOT THEM!
LOOK AT THE STRENGTH OF THE MAN.
HE DID FALL OVER, THOUGH.

Geser smiles.

Camille says, GOOD EFFORT FROM YOU
GUYS.

(Applauding)

Camille high-fives her team. Geser high-fives his.

Camille says, YOUR TEAM WAS GREAT.
EVEN WITH ALL THE THREE-YEAR
OLDS.
I'M KIND OF EMBARRASSED.
YEAH, PLEASE CAN YOU GET ME OUT
OF THIS ROPE?

Geser smiles and helps untie Camille.

Karim narrates, ONCE CAMILLE IS SET
FREE, BREAK TIME IS OVER, AND
IT'S BACK TO TRAINING.
EXCEPT NOW, ON THE REAL HORSES.

Jocelyn says, GESER SAID IT'S TIME WE CAN
GET ON OUR HORSES AND I'M REALLY
EXCITED TO GO SEE DAVE AGAIN.

Camille says, NICE TO SEE YOU, DAVE.
HELLO, HARRY.
HOW'S TYRONE DOING?

Alesha says, TYRONE IS GREAT.

Camille says, NEED TO GIVE YOU A LEG UP.

Alesha pulls herself up onto her horse.

Camille says, YES, WELL DONE.

Bilguun speaks Mongolian. A person translates for him.

Bilguun says, WHEN YOU'RE
MOUNTING, JUST HOLD THE REIGNS
AS TIGHT AS POSSIBLE.
IF YOU RELEASE THEM BEFORE YOU
MOUNT, THE HORSE WILL GO.
OTHERWISE YOU'RE DOING WELL.

Bilguun gives Alesha a thumbs up and she laughs.

Jocelyn says, SO IS THAT RIGHT FOR
DOING IT IN MONGOLIA?

Sumiya speaks Mongolian. A person translates for her.

Sumiya says, YES, IT'S CORRECT.
YOU'RE DOING WELL.

Jocelyn smiles.

Karim narrates, THE GIRLS SEEM HAPPY
TO BE BACK WITH THEIR HORSES,
AND HOPEFULLY BONDING WITH THEM
YESTERDAY WILL MEAN NO MISHAPS
TODAY, AS GESER HAS A LONG RIDE
PLANNED.

Camille says, WHOA, I DID NOT KNOW
THEY WERE GOING TO GO THAT FAR.
I HOPE THAT'S NOT BECAUSE THEY
JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO TELL
HORSES TO STOP.

Karim narrates, THE GIRLS ARE LOOKING
MUCH MORE CONFIDENT TODAY.
WHICH IS GOOD NEWS, WHEN THEY
SAW THE MONGOLIAN RIDERS
YESTERDAY, IT SEEMED LIKE THEY'D
NEVER GET NEAR THEIR LEVEL.
BUT TODAY THEY SEEM COMFORTABLE.
WHICH IS A RELIEF, AS THEY'RE
HEADING OFF MILES INTO THE
COLD MONGOLIAN PLAINS.

Alesha says, CHOO-CHOO.

Karim narrates, IT'S A HORSE, ALESHA,
NOT A TRAIN.
HORSE RIDING'S NOT ALL
ABOUT GRIPPING ON, BALANCE IS
MUCH MORE IMPORTANT.
YOUR MUSCLES SHOULD BE ACTIVE,
BUT NOT TENSE.

Alesha’s upper arms are highlighted.

Karim narrates, SOUNDS EASY BUT OVER A LONG TIME
THOSE MUSCLES CAN TIRE OUT.

Neisha’s thighs are highlighted.

Karim narrates, AND YOU NEED TO BALANCE IN THE
RIGHT POSITION, IF YOU ARE
LEANING FAR BACK, YOUR HORSE
WILL SLOW DOWN.

Alesha leans back,

Karim narrates, TOO FAR FORWARD, YOUR HORSE
WILL SPEED UP.

Alesha’s and Jocelyn’s horses pick up speed.

Karim narrates, YOU'RE LIKE AN ACCELERATOR
ON ITS BACK, BASICALLY.
NEISHA IS OBVIOUSLY MORE THAN
COMFORTABLE ON A HORSE, AND
SEEMS TO BE ADAPTING TO THE
MONGOLIAN STYLE OF RIDING NOW.

Bilguun helps Neisha with her horse.

Karim narrates, ALESHA SEEMS TO HAVE HER WORK
CUT OUT WITH TYRONE,
WHO DEFINITELY SEEMS TO BE IN
CONTROL OF HER.

Geser helps Alesha with her horse.

Alesha says, OH, SLOW DOWN, TYRONE.

Camille says, OH, JOCELYN'S IS RUNNING.
JOCELYN'S IS RUNNING.
JOCELYN'S IS RUNNING!

Karim narrates, JOCELYN'S PICKING IT
UP PRETTY WELL, AND HAS REALLY
MOVED ON FROM YESTERDAY'S TROT.

Camille says, JOCELYN LOOKS LIKE AN
ABSOLUTE NATURAL, I'M SURPRISED
BY THAT, 'CAUSE SHE WAS REALLY
NERVOUS ABOUT FALLING OFF
YESTERDAY.

Karim narrates, EVENTUALLY THE GIRLS
RETURN, PROGRESS MADE, BUT
THERE'S STILL LOADS TO DO.

Alesha climbs off her horse. Camille and the girls stand with Geser, who speaks Mongolian. A person translates for him.

Geser says, NEXT TIME, YOU'LL
RIDE ALONE.
I'LL BE AROUND, BUT YOU'LL
CONTROL YOURSELVES.

Camille asks, QUITE EXCITED?

The girls say, YEAH, YEAH.

Camille asks, ALESHA, A BIT OF HESITATION?

Alesha says, IT WILL BE FUN.

The girls laugh.

Camille says, IT WILL BE INTERESTING.

Alesha says, YEAH, INTERESTING, THAT'S A GOOD
WORD.

Karim narrates, IT'S TIME FOR THE END
OF DAY TEAM TALK WITH GESER TO
SEE IF HE'S HAPPY WITH THE
GIRLS' PROGRESS ON THE HORSES,
AND TO DROP A COUPLE OF
BOMBSHELLS ABOUT THE FINAL
EVENT.

Camille says, AS YOU KNOW, ALL
THIS TRAINING IS LEADING UP TO A
MASSIVE RACE AT THE END OF THE
WEEK, AND THERE'S THREE PARTS
OF THE RACE.
YOU'RE DOING HORSE RIDING.

Two people ride horses on a path.

Camille adds, AND ARCHERY.

Geser shoots an arrow at a target.

Camille adds, AND LASSOING.

A boy throws a lasso. Jocelyn raises her eyebrows.

Camille says, JOCELYN IS LIKE, WHAT?!

A person translates for Geser.

Geser says, SO, OVER THE COURSE OF THIS
WEEK, YOU ARE LEARNING LOTS OF
NEW SKILLS.
I'M LOOKING OUT FOR WHO'S
PUTTING IN LOTS OF EFFORT AND
WHO'S IMPROVING.
AND THEN BEFORE THE COMPETITION,
I WILL CHOOSE ONE OF YOU TO BE
TEAM CAPTAIN.

Camille says, EVERYONE'S LOOKING AT NEISHA.
YOU DO HAVE THE MOST HORSEY
EXPERIENCE.

Neisha says, IT'S NOT ALL HORSES THOUGH.

Camille says, NO, SHE'S RIGHT, IT'S NOT A
DONE DEAL.

A person translates for Geser.

Geser says, TODAY, ALL THREE
OF YOU PUT IN LOTS OF EFFORT AND
WERE VERY BRAVE.
SO PLEASE KEEP THAT UP OVER THE
NEXT FEW DAYS.

Neisha smiles.

Geser says, IT'S VERY DIFFICULT FOR THE
GIRLS TO LEARN THESE SKILLS IN
JUST A FEW DAYS, SO IT'S GOING
TO BE VERY TOUGH.

Karim narrates, NEXT TIME.
COACH GESER FIRES THE GIRL'S
TEAM INTO LEARNING ANOTHER NEW
SKILL.

Geser shoots arrows at a target.

Neisha says, SO CLOSE TO BULLSEYE.

Camille says, WOW!

(Shouting)

Karim narrates, CAMILLE GETS INTO A
SPIN.

Camille is twisted and pushed to the ground by a wrestling partner.

Camille says, THAT WAS JUST, I WAS JUST
MESSING WITH YOU.
I WASN'T SCARED THEN.

Karim narrates, AND THE GIRLS SEE JUST HOW
TOUGH THE LOCAL COMPETITION IS.

Camille cheers, WHOO, HERE THEY COME IN!

(Applauding)

Alesha says, DIDN'T REALISE THEY WERE
GOING TO BE 10 AND BE THAT GOOD.

Karim narrates, HOW WILL THEY GET ON,
WITH JUST A WEEK TO BEAT
THE MONGOLIAN NOMADS?
