Kökbörü – Brutal, elegant, fast-paced and downright bloody cool!


Brutal, elegant, fast-paced and downright bloody cool! Kökbörü, the most popular national sport in Kyrgyzstan.

Not so much a blog post, I just wanted to change the ‘featured image’ from being a beautiful picture of some SIM cards to something a little more exciting. Yesterday, 31st of August, marked Kyrgyzstan’s independence from the Soviet Union. As a gesture of respect we went to watch the head-less, hoof-less carcass of a goat get dragged and thrown around a pitch for sixty minutes by two teams of Kyrgyz blokes on horses.

Don’t worry, they’ll be plenty of action footage in our Central Asia film, soon to be on release to the general public. A pre-warning the film will include some VERY explicit footage of animal slaughtering.
