It is a serious business for the rural Berbers. The teams represent different villages and have to compete in the ​synchronicity of riding the horses and shooting the gunpowder jezail muskets well above their heads. To win the annual competition between different remote villages would mean the cash prize and the bragging rights. Each year these festivals might change their spots, therefore to find one will require some luck and local connections, but they all happen in early autumn.
