Pacu Jawi (Cow Race) near Payakumbuh, West Sumatra, Indonesia

Paired cows run a muddy course of about hundred meters. The objective is not to be the fastest but to finish the course in a straight line and with maximum possible grace.A jockey positions himself on a wooden contraption fixed to a harness, holds on to the tails and occasionally bites them to egg on the cows.
