Jorhat, Assam, India, February 23, 2014: Missing tribal jockeys take part at the “Governor’s Cup Race” organised as part of the historical Jorhat Race in Jorhat, Assam, India, on February 23, 2014. Carrying forward the century-old horse racing organised by British officials in 1877, the equestrian skills of Mising riders are put to test once again in the open field of Gymkhana Club on Sunday with more than 100 participants. The race has been organised every year for preservation of the horse breed that is found in nearby areas along the Brahmaputra bank of the State. Photo Credit: Indian Photo Agency (InPA)
