In Turkmenistan, it's a day to celebrate Akhal-Teke horses

From the MSNBC site:
Turkmenistan's President Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov smiles as he rides a horse with a dove on his shoulder in the capital Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, on Sunday, April 24. Wearing a blue caftan and shaggy sheepskin hat, Turkmenistan's president looked every part the accomplished horse-riding tribesman as he effortlessly cantered on his jewel-adorned stallion before cheering crowds.
The crowning touch came when a white dove gracefully landed on his right shoulder. 
No mention of kok-boru.
