Horsemen are competing in a traditional Central Asian sports game, kok-boru. This game is also called buzkashi, which literally means 'goat dragging'. The participants of the game are competing to drag a goat carcass toward a goal (the gate of the opposing team or their settlement). When the goat carcass is brought to the agreed goal, the opposing team cannot compete for it any longer.
