All stretched out during a bull race in Sumatra

This bull race is held in wet paddy fields in the country side in West Sumatra. The idea is not to win a race, but to see if the animals are healthy and how they perform - run, turn and obey. So I was told by some locals at the scene. In this image you can see that the Jockey is trying his best to stay attached to both animals in anyway he can.
