Overview of festivals and celebrations in Turkey
Jereed (Cirit or Gokboru in Turkish) is a traditional sport in Turkey. Local people have played it since the Turkic Khaganate period. Horses have always been sacred and irreplaceable animals for Turks. They were virtually born, raised, fighting, and died on a horse. Turkish people even drank kumis made from mare’s milk. Javelin was the main game of Turkish people during ceremonies and was considered the oldest horse sport in the country. For the first time, Javelin was introduced in Anatolia by Alp Arslan, Sultan of Great Seljuk. The celebration is held every spring. When the game ends, the winner is selected by a council of professional players depending on points won by each team.
