What Are The Rules
Goats At The Olympics
A Rider And His Mount
In Persian, buzkashi translates as “goat grabbing”. Introduced by the nomadic Turkic populations between the 10th and 15th centuries during westward migrations from China and Mongolia, the game’s foundations lie in goat and cattle theft between nomadic tribes, and features horseback players fight for the possession of a goat or calf carcass.
Before the game, the carcass is decapitated, gutted and soaked in water for the 24 hours ensuring it stays in one piece and sand is sometimes added for additional weight. It’s then placed in a centre circle where on a signal, horsemen race to grab the carcass and then maintain possession, fighting off each other as the carcass’s elasticity is put to the test.
Rurally though, while competition is every bit as fierce, buzkashi is a far more informal and chaotic affair. Here, villages compete in a form of the game known as Tudabarai where the aim is simply to maintain possession of the carcass and the rules are minimal. A rider cannot secure the carcass onto their saddle nor they hit an opponent on the hand or knock the carcass away. Everything else is fair game. Boundaries are often decided by the landscape and punching, kicking and even forcing players into rivers is all common place. Games can last several days and sometimes with hundreds competing in a single match, there are no teams.
