Horsemen learned to bend low at speed, like acrobats to finish off fallen enemies with sabres, looting their prey on the ground by scooping up jewels that caught their eye. There are stories, too, of Genghis Khan knocking about an enemy's head as if it were a ball. Polo player in action. Shanghai Tang Polo Cup, August, 2010. Monkhe Tengri Camp. Orkhon Valley, Central Mongolia.
