VTV.vn - On the ninth day of the first lunar month, which fell on a Sunday this year, thousands of people across the country flocked to An Xuan in Tuy An district, Phu Yen province to attend the Th Thung horse race festival.

Known as a unique traditional festival, the Thi Thung horse race has been held for more than half a decade. Horses in An Xuan play an important role in the daily life of people here, with the animal considered a member of each local family. The traditional approach of riding without a saddle makes the race more interesting and gives spectacular performances.

Essentially, the man who has the fastest horse is the winner. This race is designed for riders who have had their horses since birth. According to local authorities, visitors to the festival will have a chance to join the exciting atmosphere of the event with a series of cultural activities such as folk games, sports activities and art performances. The district is working out a plan to maintain and develop the race with hopes of participation from other localities in the region.
