I went to a reindeer racing last weekend, at the same festival were I saw the Edward S. Curtis-exhibition I wrote about in my last post. Reindeers were traditionally used to pull sledges for the Sámi families, but usually not anymore. There are a lot of reindeer racing in the north of Norway, in Finmark, but I had only seen this kind of racing once before. It seems both the reindeers and the “drivers” enjoyed the speed. There are more photos from this competition in this link to my gallery. And there are also photos from the Lopme Naestie festival on this link.
