This is not a horse that you usually saw on the zoo, lumping horse is a dance performance originated from Indonesia. Horse itself is made from a bamboo that arrange after the horse body, the dancer ride the lumping horse and dance until the dancer becoming trance with the traditional music play.

What is so special about the lumping horse dance, its only dancer with a fake horse and playing traditional music?

It’s not only an ordinary dance, lumping horse also involved mystical world. After the dancer got into trance stage, the dancer will act like a real horse and will eat unusual foodstuff. The lumping horse dancer will eat fraction glass, fire and coconut skins.
