The Mad Horse

Last summer, 10000 monks novitation ceremony was held in a small town named Myaung in the dry zone of Myanmar. All the monks( to be ) paraded around the town, some on elephants, some on the horses and some on the ox carts. After a long march under the heat of the summer sun some of horses got wild and started shaking off the monks( to be ) from their back.
