National Horse Games


Tyiyn enmei

This is a competition in which young djigits can show off their hosemanship and agility. It used to involve picking up coins from the ground while galloping - but these days the coins have been replaced by flags made from coloured rags. These are placed at measured intervals along a course flags and the riders gallop towards them, beding down over the side of their horse to reach down and grab them as they pass.  As the rider grabs one, he throws it high into the air and the audience counts to keep tally. After three passes, the rider with the highest tally is adjudged the winner.
