Horse OX-USA Inc. Brings New Sport to the U.S.

'Ox Game' Introduces Americans to Afghani Culture and is a Favorite of U.S. Soldiers Overseas

ONTARIO, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Horse OX-USA Inc. has announced the American debut of 'Ox Game' - a horseback sport that has been a favorite in Afghanistan for over two thousand years - as well as a favorite of U.S. soldiers based overseas. The American debut of Ox Game is the dream-come-true of Sonny Amin, who for 25 years has wanted to bring the sport to his new home in America and to see it played in every American city. Ox Game's American debut is scheduled for Sunday, June 12, 2005, 11:30 am, at 7330 Jurupa Road and Camino Real in Riverside, California.

Horse OX-USA projects that this very old - but new to the U.S. - horseback sport will be adopted into American horse sports and move through America like "wildfire." Amin notes, "There was a song called 'Wildfire' about a horse, and it was very magical - and so is Ox Game. Ox Game's destiny was to come to America, no doubt about it."

Amin says that Ox Game will prove to be an all-American horse sport and become an American sports favorite quickly. He believes this is because Ox Game features every aspect of what Americans want to see in sports: It is exciting, fast-moving, very aggressive, and at the same time "art in motion."

Spectators of Ox Game can watch expert riders/players as they play Ox Game on beautiful, well-trained and agile horses. Amin observes that spectators are often spellbound watching players fighting aggressively for the prize - a heavy, burlap, tailed object that serves as a substitute for the real goat that was used in the game for two thousand years. In addition, the horses seem to be as competitive as the horsemen; they appear to want to see their rider seize the prize. Says Amin, "Seeing those beautiful animals tangled together at times, along with their riders, keeps you on the edge of your seat - all great sports have that effect on us."

The rules of Ox Game have been Americanized and are similar to a combination of basketball and football rules. Amin commented, "The game rules are easily understood, but don't blink your eyes or you might miss the moment! This game is way beyond fast-moving. To say this game is exciting is indeed an understatement. It's thrilling, and you will love it!"

Don't miss Ox Game's premiere performance: Once again, the "Ox Game Exhibition" will be held on Sunday, June 12, 2005, 11:30 am, at 7330 Jurupa Road, Riverside, California, prior to the annual Jurupa Rodeo.

"Come see for yourself, and be a part of horse sports history in the making," concluded Amin.
