Buzkashi or Kok-boru or Oglak Tartis (Persian, Urdu: بزکشی bozkæšī; Tajik: бузкашӣ buzkašī, "goat dragging"; Uzbek, Tatar: kökbörü, kök "blue" + börü "wolf"; Kazakh: көкпар; Kyrgyz: улак-тартыш or көкбөрү; Pashto: وزلوبه wuzloba, "goat game"; Turkmen: owlakgapdy; Chinese: 叼羊) is a traditional Central Asian team sport played on horseback in Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, northern Pakistan and Kazakhstan. The steppes' people were skilled riders who could grab a goat or calf from the ground while riding a horse at full gallop. The goal of a player is to grab the carcass of a headless goat or calf and then get it clear of the other players and pitch it across a goal line or into a target circle or vat.
