Women warriors series by maxre Women warriors series by maxre
Yabusame, Towada, Nippon.

The festival grows bigger and bigger each year. But this year, more little contestants are there; as in teenagers.

One great thing I saw was one of the winners from last year encourage a young one that missed all targets on her run. There's a clear winner in these competition, but honor and humility are part of the responsibility of being the best. It was nice to see the encouragement given.

We all could learn a thing or two from these archers.

It's so good to hear of the honor and humility you witnessed. You're absolutely right, the world needs more people like that. Great picture. I especially love the pony. It looks as focused as she is. :)

I know this sounds so cliche' but it almost seems like they become one with the horse. It's as if the horse knows exactly where to go and how fast to go.

It's an incredible feeling to be that close with a horse. It's something that has to be experienced. Of all the horses we had while I was growing up I only had one that I can claim that bond with... but we never did any competitions.

I can only imagine. There are wild horses in the northernmost tip of Honshu and I had a one approach me to smell me. If they like you, they'll let you touch them.
