Bull Race Tradition

Bull Race is a tradition in the form of a buffalo race that has long been inherent in Balinese society, especially in Jembrana Regency.

Where in the local community is usually called the Makepung tradition.

Bullrace consists of two to three pairs of male buffaloes, each of which pulls a small cart.

According to elders in this area, this tradition originated from the activities of ancient ancestors when they transported plants from rice fields to homes.

When leaving for the fields, the cart that has not been loaded will feel lighter by the buffalo couple.

This is where practicing drivers start racing buffalo with each other until the convoy turns into a cart racing event to the harvest location.

The post-harvest train race then inspired the Makepung tradition in Jembrana.

But the tools for hitting buffaloes no longer use whips or whips, but use rattan sticks.

The cart used is also not a large cart like when transporting crops, but a small cart that is only enough for jockeys.
