Ghode Jatra

The Nepali Army hosts a horse racing day at the Tundikhel parade ground in Kathmandu. A chance to showcase the army’s equestrian (and motorcycle) skills, the festival also has some myth surrounding its horses: legend has it they are raced to trample demons that would rise from the earth to create havoc on this day.
