Tent-pegging at its best in Kahrian

The All-Punjab Tent-Pegging Festival was held in Kahrian with tent-peggers from all round the province taking part in the three-day event.

The players showcased their excellent horsemanship skills, picking up the pegs with amazing accuracy with their horses at a galloping speed. And there was no lack of support.

A large number of spectators -- including hundreds of tent-pegging enthusiasts from far-flung areas of Pakistan\'s Punjab province -- turned up at the venue to cheer on their favourites. They seemed to be gripped with the thrilling spectacle of the combined effort of the man and the animal. Some were even seen dancing with joy whenever their players performed a perfect pick.

Tent pegging is one of Pakistan\'s traditional sports and has a huge following in Punjab. A lot of tournaments, almost all on self finance basis, are held in the province throughout the year with teams and players turning up for each event in great numbers. They spend a lot of money not just on the tourna ment but also on the transport of the horses, which are brought to the tournament venues on trawlers and other similar means. And they do all this just for the love of the unique sport.
