Buzkashi match- Kabul

Buzkashi- the national sport of Afghanistan. This event was held New Year's Day, 2010 in Kabul.

Buzkashi in Mazar-e-Sharif

A glimpse of a regular weekly Buzkashi session in Mazar-e-Sharif. The objective of this game is to pick up a corpse of a calf from a white circle on the ground, ride with it around a flag in a distance, and return it inside the starting circle point. Opponents try to wrestle the corpse away from the current holder, as the one who drops the calf back in the circle always wins, even if he only picked it up 10 meters away from the circle on its way back. In the session captured in this video, the game is not played in teams, and individuals compete for a prize, which is announced at the beginning of each round.
In the beginning of the video, you can see the riders returning with the calf and completing one round of the game by dropping the calf in the white circle. As soon as that happens, other riders start wrestling for the corpse, effectively starting another round of the game. The winner of the previous round calmly rides to the tribune to claim his prize.
You can then observe the crowd ride around the flag in the distance. After the corpse is dropped, it is picked up by another rider, who misses the circle though (it is difficult to steer the horse while carrying a 50-kg corpse). The riders then wrestle for the corpse in far right corned of the playing ground, then in the left corner, until eventually the corpse is successfully returned in the circle, ending the round.
Immediately after that, the the third round commences, as one rider grabs the corpse and rides out, only to lose it to another two riders, who then try to pull it from one another.
One full round and parts of two other rounds are captured in this video. The music was performed live at the event.

Buzkashi in Mazar-e Sharif: bringing a new calf

At one point, the corpse of a calf that was being used in the game got damaged, so the game sponsor (director of a local hospital) rushed out to bring a new one. As this video demonstrates, it was probably freshly killed just for the game, as fresh blood kept coming from its neck. It was gutted right on the playing field and in no way sewn or anything for the game, as goat corpses often are.

Buzkashi Mazar-i-Sharif Afghanistan 2010

Buzkashi has some simple rules: There are either 2 teams or, everyman plays as an individual. The aim is to hoist the goat carcass (usually soaked in water for extra toughness), into a chalk circle.

Banned under the Taliban the sport is now widely played during the winter season and also boosts a Buzkhasi Federation.

Buzkashi has been commented as being an inherently political game, reflecting northern Afghan social customs. Powerful khans sponsor riders and teams, with major implications. G. Whitney Azoy, author of Buzkashi: Game and Power in Afghanistan, notes, When his horses and riders win, the khan's name is said to rise. And reputation is the true currency of Afghan politics. More relevant for U.S. policy: If a buzkashi game devolves into chaos, riders will switch allegiances, joining a game hosted by a different khan [

Buzkashi - Traditional Central Asian Sport on Horseback

The Buzkashi game held in March 23, 2016 in Kayrakkum, Tajikistan.

Buzkashi (literally goat dragging in Persian), also known as kokpar or kupkari is the Central Asian sport in which horse-mounted players attempt to drag a goat or calf carcass toward a goal.
In Tajikistan, buzkashi is played in a variety of ways. The most common iteration is a free-form game, often played in a mountain valley or other natural arena, in which each player competes individually to seize the buz and carry it to a goal. Forming unofficial teams or alliances does occur, but is discouraged in favor of individual play. Often, dozens of riders will compete against one another simultaneously, making the scrum to retrieve a fallen buz a chaotic affair. Tajik buzkashi games typically consist of many short matches, with a prize being awarded to each player who successfully scores a point.
