Kyrgyzstan is a small Central Asian country composed of mostly people whole are only one or two generations removed from being nomadic horsemen. They still play games that are used to keep their riding skills intact. The game shown involves the rider, moving at a fast gallop, leaning down and picking small markers from the ground and then throwing them into a goal.
