A Snowy Game Of Buzkashi

Horsemen competed in a winter tournament in buzkashi, also known as kokpar, in the eastern Uzbek city of Parkent on January 21. In the Central Asian sport, which is often compared to polo, riders compete to grab a goat carcass and carry it toward a goal. The players at the Parkent games included ethnic Kazakhs, who make up a sizeable part of eastern Uzbekistan's population, as well as ethnic Uzbeks and others.
