Chovgan, the national sport

The Karabakh horse, native to the country, has long been bred for its stamina and speed. In 1956, one of these horses was gifted to Queen Elizabeth II. Horses are such an important cultural symbol in Azerbaijan that they even play a role in the national Sport.

Chovgan, a popular pastime on the plains of Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Iran, originated more than two millennia ago. The game is played to a type of folk music known as janghi.
