So, why were the Mamluks successful in repelling the Mongols? A contributing factor to their success was their status as professional soldiers. The small Mamluk state featured very little administrative, cultural, and intellectual development. Its existence was solely for military training. The Mamluks' military skills easily matched those of the powerful Mongols. Additionally, the Mamluks used horseshoes on their horses. The Mongols did not, so the rocky terrain of Syria injured the hooves of the Mongol horses and made them ineffective. Finally, the Mamluks realized that grasslands were needed for the Mongol horses. Therefore, they often burned the grasslands to prevent Mongol horses from grazing. The Mamluk victories in 1260 marked a turning point for the Mongol army in the region.
