Riding a Buffalo

April 3, 2012

Travel Tuesday:  Riding a Water Buffalo

Location:  Bukidnon Province, Mindanao, Philippines

In the mountains of Bukidnon, the local people have learned to saddle water buffalo’s  and ride them like horses.  I am surprised that they are able to control them and even saddle them!

Giddy-up Buffalo!

    I have a couple pictures of you riding a caraboa at about the age of 6 1/2 and also 7 1/2. I rode one at “the farm” on Mindanao when I was 60!
