In a traditional Mustangi horse-racing festival, it's not just the men who drink - they feed the horses grain alcohol as well. Here, a traditionally-dressed horse racer gains on a more modernly dressed contender. Somehow, galloping bareback with hands and feet splayed, this drunken rider stays mounted.
Location: Muktinath, Nepal
