The people began to laugh, that this is the most ridiculous competition of all, and they already wanted to disperse, as the old man came out of the crowd, whispered something to the cowboys, they did something and rushed what is for the spirit ahead, trying to outrun each other. What did the old man whisper to the cowboys, if the main rule did not change: did he win, whose horse came second?
