Firstly, different legends about the origin of Horse-Head Fiddle, namely, Хөхөө Намжилын домог”, “Аргасун хуурчийн домог”, “Жонон харын домог” had been popular among the Mongolian people for a long period of time. The main idea of the legends was primarily about great relationships between humans and horses.

For musicians, Horse-Head Fiddle means big language or ‘ikel’ instruments, which played for telling horse’s tales with a long neck of Morin khuur and a bucket-shaped feature covered with camel, goat, or sheepskins. This kind of bucket-shaped Morin Huurs are still used in Western Mongolia. Morin Khuurs are different from regions to regions, they can vary in forms and shapes representing horses, humans, lions and crocodile’s heads on the instruments.
