Our Photo of the Day series this week shares photos from Inner Mongolia, taken during the Naadam period last year.
Aside from the wrestlers, a major feature of the Naadam period, or any period in Inner Mongolia really, is the horses.
Many of the visitors to the Plain Blue Banner festivities turned up on horses to watch horse races and debate which of the horses were among the best looking in the region.
It’s the races — with around 20 horses and riders going full pelt across the grass — that make for one of the most dramatic parts of the whole event however.
