    A Tibetan-style horsemanship show is held on September 1 as part of the celebration for the annual Shoton Festival, commonly known as the Yogurt Festival. Equestrians perform about ten kinds of stunts while riding a horse.


    The traditional equestrian show is a game for the brave, which is held annually in Lhasa, capital of the Tibet autonomous region.


    A group of top-level horsemen from Lhasa wowed the crowd with all kinds of equestrian feats, including speed racing, dancing on horseback, and even making handstands on galloping horses.
