A trainer is demonstrating his horse-dancing skills in the small village of Sohan, near Islamabad. Horse dancing is a tradition of Punjab province: the horses are not ridden but conducted by the man nearby. Normally, in festivals, drums are also played to guide the horse. The horse dances mostly on his back legs, kneeling, standing up, or tapping his front legs on the ground.
