One man's search for the tribal horse games of Asia and Africa

From the buzkashi horsemen in Afghanistan and Mongolia, to the dancing horses of Mali and the mounted Oromo spearmen of Ethiopia, Bob Thompson has spent decades travelling, often by battered local buses, to the most difficult outreaches of the world to discover the last remaining tribal horse games of Asia and Africa.

He covers Gilgit polo, visits the Ethiopian national stud, watches cirit and tent-pegging, and his journey takes him to such exotic places as Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Iran and Pakistan.

Bob Thompson travels to some of the world’s most remote places to fulfil his passion for seeing, while they still remain, the last vestiges of the skills of the war horse.
