|Horses have always been an essential part of a nomad’s life ; an aid to herding, a status symbol, a means of travel. Though still used for herding in areas where even motorcycles are out of bound, they rarely serve as transportation.
In the last few years, however, they have made a passionate comeback in racing, ceremonies and have regained their place as a status symbol.
Horses are close to their owners and want to make them proud. In turn they are loved and protected. On a truck on their way to a race, feeding from recycled basketballs Horseman Wandey in Norlha chuba, hat and scarf, at the annual Laptse.
