Fair Dance

Fairgoers are entertained by a “beautiful dancing horse [at the] Nagaur Cattle Fair,” Your Shot community member Manthan Joshi explains. The eight-day fair, held in Rajasthan, India, takes place annually. Although it’s primarily an animal-trading event, the fair also includes bazaars, music, sporting events, and entertainment such as performances by folk dancers.
