Horse Racing in Bima

Horse racing is held at least four times a year, in April or May, July, August and December, at the Desa Panda horse stadium, 12km west of town on the Trans-Sumbawa Hwy. There’s a large grandstand, a gaggle of warungs and plenty of cheering as horses, ridden by children between the ages of nine and 15, thunder around a dusty track.
