A jockey spurs the buffalos as they race during the Barapan Kebo or buffalo races as part of the Moyo festival in SumbawaIsland, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The traditional Buffalo races, known as Barapan Kebo, are held by Samawa tribes in muddy rice fields to celebrate and provide entertainment ahead of the annual planting season. Jockeys secure themselves on a wooden structure attached to the buffalo, and manoeuvre across the mud in a race to the finish line. The jockeys wield long sticks, in a similar style to jousting, and direct them towards targets called ‘saka’. Hundreds of buffalos and jockeys gather to compete for farming tools, refrigerators and televisions which are awarded for the fastest buffalos to hit a target of ‘saka’. The best buffalos can sell for thousands of dollars. Photograph: Ulet Ifansasti/Getty Images
