This sport is a Turkish tradition. Nomads living in Central and Eastern Asia once spent their entire lives on horses and all aspects of their lives (including sports) were related to these animals. The sports that are their cultural heritage include many horse sports, including: cirit.

The photos were taken during the 6th Ethnosport Culture Festival in Istanbul (Turkey), on June 6-9, 2024.
