Buzkashi in Afghanistan

Buzkashi is the national sport of Afghanistan and typifies the wild, freewheeling nature of the country. Played on horseback with a 30kg dead goat as a ball the game is rough, tough and full of spectacle. We took a British chap to watch some Buzkashi in it’s spiritual home, Mazar e Sharif, in December. It was a bluebird day and he had a great camera so we have a few excellent snaps for your pleasire – check out the link here.
