He describes the roots of this ancient agricultural festival which celebrates man’s partnership with the animals that play an integral role in his crops, food and daily life. Today, though there have been a few bad apples, the tradition still plays a role in preserving the native breeds and infusing the rural youth with the spirit of sport, adventure, and healthy living.
