Equestrian games have been launched in the village of Jany-Jol in Toktogul district to mark the 150th anniversary of the most famous Kyrgyz improvising poet and singer, Toktogul Satylganov.
Various national games on horses will be conducted.
The teams will be awarded with prizes tomorrow as part of the official events.
Toktogul Satylganov's fame reached a high point in the Soviet era when he was promoted as a musician of the people. This distinction was founded largely on Satylganov's works in the pre-revolutionary era which were interpreted as reflecting the class struggle.
