Sports Equestrian Buzkashi
4
Buzkashi, or goat grabbing, is the national sport of Afghanistan. The game starts with a headless goat carcass placed in the center of a circle and surrounded by the players of two opposing teams. The object of the game is to get control of the carcass and bring it to the scoring area. Buzkashi is divided into two versions, Tudabarai and Qarajai. The game is very similar to polo except for fewer rules. Players are not allowed to shoot or stab a member of the opposing team.
