A rider steers his steed to victory during the annual Nek Ta Pring Ek competition held in Kandal province's Ponhea Leu district. The competition is part of a ceremony meant to bring good luck to participating villagers. As part of the celebration, racers attempt to ride their cart horses, many of which have rarely been mounted and are reluctant to cooperate.
