Trooping the Colour, Borneo Style

Kota Belud, “waaaah!”, the land of horses & buffalos (it could easily be the land of milk & honey). So, here it begins the story of the “Five Horsemen On the Prairie“. First thing first, let’s meet our world-famous horseman of Kota Belud. I have seen pictures of this old gentleman countless times, each time he still conjures up the image of the  “wow!” factor.  There it is, I am still insisting on putting up a picture of this gentleman with a photogenic “wow!” factor.
