Nomad Breaking a Horse

I captured this shot while I was staying in the middle of the Gobi Desert. This man was breaking a horse. The cool thing about breaking a horse (training a horse to be submissive) is that once the horse gives up, you never have to break it again. This horse put up quite the fight... He was bucking for over an hour and ran off with the man (so far away that the others had to hop on a motorcycle to go help). Eventually, the man came back riding the horse... He had been broken.
