This was taken in West Sumatra, Indonesia. Every 2 or 3 months local people held a cow contest festival named "Pacu Jawi". A jockey which is actually a younger farmer will ride the 2 cows. Not 'regular' cows but trained cows that able to running fast and straight in a muddy field. That is main requirement for the winner. No animal hurt. And they run only 50 m.

In mid April of 2012,....the festival will be held again.!
You could flight to Jakarta, and proceed with flight to Padang, West Sumatra.!

Great action captured in this image. As a viewer I can feel the strength of the animals, hear the noise and feel the action. Very well done!

Excellent capture,loads of movement & action.
The signature almost in the centre does distract my viewing of this powerful image,maybe you could place it a little more towards the bottom of the frame so that it doesn't interfere with the main subject. I know sometimes we are open to image theft which is a shame Sad

Glad to hear they don't hurt the cows in Indonesia because they also have cow racing like this Vietnam and they poke the cows with sharp nails to force them to make them race!
