Kok-Baru street view..kmz (799 B)What better way to show off your horsemanship and horses than to play a game of Kok-boru like those seen here in street view on the outskirts of Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. It is a very dangerous sport hard on both horse's and men. Some think the sport is cruel and archaic but most of the population like's to keep tradition's alive where they can.

Hungarian said to be "horseman nation"* so should have known about it, shame on me nor I have even heard about it. Thanks for the extra knowledge!
(*National Gallop is an annual cultural event celebrating Hungarian equestrian traditions. It's a horse race reviving Hungarian military history and the famous 'hussar' culture. The center of the event is a national horse race, a spectacular show, where Hungary's towns and villages prove their horse riding skills.)
Because of net-security settings at the office I cannot view the images in your posting so firstly I did not understand what you mean by "like those seen here". I started to search only on satellite imagery by different time-stamps AND, it was NOT useless: 40 pieces of 1,5-2 meters long 'somethings' (horses?) can be seen on imagery from 10/2/2015, 340 meters NNE from your mark. The lack of bystanders however seems to contradict this, only if this is just some practicing and also I think these must be seen bigger if were horsemen. Even this can be a group of deer or many other different.
At last I have realized you meant they can be seen on GE-Streetview! (: Great dude! Thanks and best! g
Sorry for the late reply syzygy. Wow. I'm amazed that I didn't know your nation was famous for it's horses. Sorry also about rushing this post and making so many noob mistakes like getting the kmz wrong, not explaining myself clearly. I think I must practice here in GE more often when I can kick my kid's of the desktop.
Not only the hungarian horse breeds but all our history... A saying, i have heard from old people when parent of a child makes trouble around her/his little infant picks the food up from the dirty floor: -Hey, do not worry; his/her ancient father had softened meat under the saddle! (btw, this meat is believed was not for culinary purposes, rather than some healing method of the horseback.)
Do not worry about your post! Great find, besides it was been like some F&G puzzle for me.(: Really, a great reminder; not to forget using all GE options.
p.s.: same situation by me: much more 'three-little-pigs' than GE on home-PC yet.(:
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
