Cowboys In The City

 

Last Sunday, I went to the North Reclamation Area in Mandaue City, Cebu for the Governor’s Cup 2009. During the event, there were obstacle and oval races. A small fair was also set up to feature different products for horse owners and enthusiasts. I’m not exactly sure when the program started. But I was lucky enough to witness the main events (oval/obstacle races) last Sunday afternoon. Here are the photos that I took.
