Buzkashi

Buzkashi, Afghanistan, originally uploaded by Po Lo.

Tag search ‘horse’. Great action shot. Worth viewing large.

Cap:

Buzkashi, Afghanistan. Popular game similar to polo. The riders have to take a goat or more usually a cow calf carcass, ride with it around a flag and come back to drop it in a circle. No teams no rules. It is very violent but exciting. I nearly got trampled a couple times taking pictures and last week I got crushed against a barrier by several horses.
