Backstage action at Pacu Jawi cow race in West Sumatra, Indonesia

A pair of cows run a muddy course of about hundred meters at a Pacu Jawi event. The objective is not to be the fastest but to finish the course in a straight line and with maximum possible grace I this photograph the farmers are taking the cows towards the starting line where they will be fitted with harness and the jockeys will take over.
