- Buffaloes in Black and White
- Buffalo racing, known in Sumbawa as beraban kebo, is one of Sumbawa's most widespread and popular sports. Similar to the renowned buffalo races of West Bali, known there as makepung, the Sumbawan beraban kebo not only sets buffalo against buffalo. Local people's involvement in the sport is not only as spectators, but also as jokis (jockeys), who steer their speedy beasts in pairs via wooden yokes rather than mount them like race horses.
