WATCH: This Is What 10,000 Horses Galloping Through Snow Looks Like
The rare sight of 10,000 horses galloping together has been captured on camera in China's north-west.
But at the Yili horse-breeding base in China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, it is part of the local life and a tourism program.
The grand event of 10,000 horses galloping through snow-covered grassland is held from time to time as part of the tourism program each winter.
Zhaosu County, situated in southern Ili River valley, is dubbed as the "Home to Horses from Heaven."
These horses are fed in stables most of the time. But herdsmen occasionally release them to run on the vast grassland to exercise their bodies, which has gradually become one of the main attractions for tourists.
