In this charming scene, a young woman, clad in striking tribal dress holds her pony. A group of traditional Tibetan yurts is seen in the background. Nomads use horses for riding and transporting supplies, but do not milk nor eat them. The grazing lands of Amdo in northeast Tibet have long been renowned for producing good horses. This area is also the home of the legendary Golok tribes, excellent horsemen descended from ancestral nomads who considered it bad manners to walk even when exchanging greetings between one tent and another. Although horses play only a minor economic role in Tibetan nomads’ lives, and their numbers are never anywhere near as large as those found among nomads in Mongolia, horses do help to create special attitudes and values among Tibetan nomads. Horsemanship is a highly regarded skill and throughout the Tibetan pastoral area, horse races and various contests are held that test both the horsemen’s skills and the horses’ performance.
