Buffalo race in Jembrana, Bali, Indonesia called Makepung this year followed by 249 pairs. It is usually joined by the farmers since they absolutely have buffalos to plough their farm.

Bali has unique buffalo race. This tradition which is a race for buffalos is originally from Jembrana. It is usually joined by the farmers since they absolutely have buffalos to plough their farm. However, other professions may take part in it, provided they have buffalos. Makepung is usually held once in two weeks when farmers have no schedule to plough.
The buffalos, chosen for their strength and appearance are decorated with silk banners and wooden bells and have painted horns. Pulling their driver in a chariot, they are first paraded and then a two-kilometer race follows. Needless to say, the winner gains great prestige for its owner. The event is free for attendees, but tour packages are available which include transport, lunch, entry, insurance and guide. The race is held twice a year between July and October, but due to tourist demand, events can be run on request throughout the year
On that day, hundreds couples of buffalo which each couple bounded together with a little carriage have been registered. They are divided into two groups, west and east. The division of the group is measured from the central place. For example, Ijo Gading Bridge is the central point. Then, participants from regions in west of Ijo Gading bridge belong to the west group and vice versa. Each group use different color for flag and t-shirt. For instance, west group wear green t-shirt and uses green flag and east group uses red.
Each of participants has been matched with another participant from another group. There will be two couples of buffalos; a west and an east which are released once in two minutes continually until all of buffalo couple race. Both east and west buffalo race in the same track but start in different position on one line since the track is narrow. Because of they in different position on the same line, they have their own finish position on the line. The winner is the couple of buffalo which get its finish line first. So, it is almost impossible that they pass each other and they don't need to in order to be win just run as fast as possible; and that how buffalo race goes.
