HORSE IN TBOLI SPLENDOUR

HORSE IN TBOLI SPLENDOUR, Philippines

Horses mean a lot to the Tboli tribe of Lake Sebu, Cotabato, and so they are given all the respect and decorations! A man's wealth is judged by the number and quality of his horses and he has to pay for his wives in horses! While horses are quiet a mode of transportation in this mountainous region, they are also trained for horse fights – an essential part of the Tboli culture!
