About This Project

Buzkashi (literally „goat dragging” in Persian) or kokpar is the Central Asian sport in which horse-mounted players attempt to drag a goat or calf carcass toward a goal. It is the national sport of Kyrgyzstan, where it is called „Kok Boru”. Traditionally, games could last for several days, but in its more regulated tournament version it has a limited match time.
