At the event, Sonam from Guoni Village and his horse were waiting to perform. As a member of the Damxung equestrian team, Sonam would wear nomad clothes and perform together with his horse.

“Damxung is a county that engages purely in animal husbandry,” Sonam said. “We have grown up on horseback since we were young. Today, we can take this opportunity to share the nomadic culture of Damxung County so that more people can understand it and have fun.”
