Description: This image was taken at Pacu Jawi Festival, a traditional mud-cow race that usually held after harvesting period, by Minangkabau people, especially villagers in Tanah Datar, in West Sumatra.

The two cows are loosely tied together in the Pacu Jawi races, making it difficult to control the cows who often veer off-course. Jockeys are judged not only on their speed but also on how straight their course is and how attractive they are.

To encourage the cows to race faster, the Pacu Jawi jockeys will bite their tails – a potentially dangerous endeavor that can send the cows charging in any direction.
