Equestrian games of nomadic peoples are reviving around the world and are rapidly gaining popularity. Tatarstan was no exception: in the Leninogorsk region for the first time passed the championship in audarysh - wrestling on horses.
The ethnic equestrian competition “audarysh” is translated from Tatar as “overturning”. The goal of the fight, which takes place in a circle with a diameter of forty meters, is to throw the enemy off the horse to the ground. Dzhigits from all over Tatarstan gathered in Leninogorsk to take part in the gambling championship.
An obligatory condition for an audarysh is a horse of only a wonderful Tatar breed, which is also now actively reviving.
