18 Stunning Images From The Pacu Jawi Bull Race In West Sumatra

Pacu Jawi is a 400-year-old tradition in the area, held after the rice harvest once the paddies have been cleared.

Competitors yoke themselves barefoot to two bulls using a wooden harness and drive the animals by gripping their tails. Winners are judged by their ability to run in a straight line, and by whether both animals are cooperating. Some 600 bulls and 50 farmers participated over a number of races in Pacu Jawi in February.
