The equestrian festival "Circassian Games - Takhtamukay 2023" will be held in the village of Takhtamukay on May 13 on the territory of the equestrian complex "Shagdi", the newspaper "Soviet Adygea" reports.

The event was first held last year on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the statehood of the Republic of Adygea. 

The program of the holiday includes creative performances, an exhibition of handicrafts. The organizers promise to organize food zones where guests and participants can taste national cuisine. But the main ones will be equestrian competitions, in which riders from Adygea, Karachay-Circassia and Kabardino-Balkaria will take part.

7 disciplines have been developed. In some of them, riders with horses will participate in the individual competition, and some competitions are designed for teamwork.

Games start at 11:00. The organizers advise spectators to dress for the weather and, if necessary, take umbrellas.
