just a short post - I came across three epic films made in Kazakhstan in past 10 years and freely available in their entirety or in part -
they seem to use their own Kazakh steppe horse, in its varieties.
These are sword, bow and lance movies, and we see plenty of horse archery and sword play. Epic and enjoyable unless you are Baizuo - :)
these can be watched via Youtube with English subtitles, and one has a 8-epizodes series too -
