In pictures: Darfur horse festival


Revival

The equestrian festival dates back to the 1920s, and was restarted last year after a break of almost half a century.

In the past, different groups took it in turns to host the event across Darfur.

Tradition and culture have played a central role in the gathering, with men and women performing songs and dances that date back centuries.
