Interview with TikTok and comedian Samuel. Comedian Samuel impersonates celebrities’ voices. According to Tsegahun Tesema, director of the Ethiopian Equestrian Association and owner of Beka Felda Ranch near Surruta, only Ethiopians are named after horses. “It shows how sentimental they are with their horses and how they respect their horses,” Tsegahun says. Not only has this been exclusive to the royal family, but horseback riding has been a staple in the Ethiopian countryside for years, according to Tullegahun. In addition to transportation purposes, horses were used in historical reenactments. Ceremonies such as ceremonial occasions and various public holidays. In rural Ethiopia, horses still enrich many local ceremonies with colorful costumes. In urban areas these days, many townspeople seem to have turned away from horseback riding. This can be seen at the Municipal Equestrian Arena in Jan Meda, the private Equestrian Arena in Addis Ababa, and the foreign-dominated city of Sulta. Why are the townsfolk of Addis staying away from the sport? Tegan said this is special not only for Ethiopia but also for the rest of the world.
