    A Tibetan-style horsemanship show was held on Aug. 13 as part of the celebration for the annual Shoton Festival, commonly known as the Yogurt Festival. Equestrians performed ten kinds of stunts while riding a horse, including archery and toasting.

    The Shoton Festival kicked off on August 11 in Lhasa, regional capital of Tibet Autonomous Region, with the grand thangka unfolding ceremony and other celebrations. In addition to the great Buddha exhibition and Tibetan Opera performance, the week-long festival also features horse and yak racing, yogurt eating, buttered tea and highland barleywine drinking.
