The Santa Ynez Historical Museum presents a firsthand account of the annual Mongol Derby, presented by Michael Turner on Dec. 14.

Turner was the ninth place winner of the annual derby, which features riders from around the world racing across the steppe of Mongolia. The race is the longest and considered the most grueling in competitive endurance horse racing. Turner, a Santa Barbara native who leads safaris all across the African continent, will present his firsthand account of the race and answer questions after his presentation.

The event is free and open to the public. The event takes place at 5:30 p.m. and includes wine and hors d'oeuvres. The museum is located at 3596 Sagunto St., Santa Ynez. For more information, call (805) 688-7889.
