Kuda Lumping (Javanese: Jaran Kepang or Jathilan), English: Flat Horse) is a traditional Javanese dance depicting a group of horsemen. Dancers “ride” horses made from woven bamboo and decorated with colorful paints and cloth. P1100739Generally, the dance portrays troops riding horses, but another type of Kuda Lumping performance also incorporates trances and magic tricks.
