The padi horse is synonymous with the Bajau community in Kota Belud, Sabah. It also serves as a family status. A famous and influential family would usually own many horses. The padi horse is used as a mode of transport to the padi fields or towns, as well as for the village head to patrol the village. It is also ridden during important social functions or celebrations like weddings and the annual Tamu Besar event.
