This picturesque setting is not from any tourist spot, but from the tribal hinterlands of Malkangiri district in Odisha. Here the children can be seen riding horseback and it seems they have developed a knack for it.
Horses were once the lifeline in these areas, which were bereft of roads and horses were the only mode of transport.
With road connectivity reaching these areas, the horses have become somewhat unwanted and these children ride and race these horses for fun and recreation.
