Here are some photos from the jumping competition took place at the International Equestrian Sports Complex in Ashgabat on April 23d. The horses went two rounds, the first at 110cm and then 120cm. Bori ridden by B. Garrajayew took first place, next was Gokdere ridden by D. Atayew, and third was Yedigaya ridden by A. Ballyyew. You can see all of the photos in the Turkmen Horse Holiday 2014 gallery.
