    • Synopsis
    • Since ancient times Central Asian shepherds herding their animals between pastures frequently faced attacks from wolves. To save their flocks brave horsemen would chase and grab the wolves, a skill that eventually evolved into a sport - the wolf replaced by a goat carcass. Playing among a mass of 200 horsemen, players demonstrated their
      individual strength, courage and honor by maneuvering through the scrum to carry the carcass across the goal line
