Bareback: Thousands of locals and tourists flocked to the annual Bac Ha traditional horse race on Sunday. Seventy-eight jockeys from Bac Ha and Si Ma Cai districts in the northern province of Lao Cai participated in the event.
Some of them were experienced jockeys who had won prizes in previous races, like Vang Van Huynh, Vang Van Thuc and Vang Van Quyet (Bac Ha District) and Ma Van Ba (Si Ma Cai District). The jockeys competed fiercely in each race. Quyet finally won the race, followed by Vang Van Sinh (Ma Cai District) and Vang Van Huynh (Bac Ha District). — VNA/VNS Photo Nguyen Gia Lam
