Colts at the Hippodrome#

Colts at the Hippodrome
Licensed under PD

Preparing to race at the Hippodrome in Bishkek. Colts - male baby horses usually under 18 months old - are used in these contests.

Because these animals are too young to hold adults, they are raced by boys. Note that not only do they not have helmets, most do not have saddles.
