There are several fascinating competitions. During the first competition each golden eagle is released from the top of the mountain and it has to catch some meat which is hold by the eagle hunter on his galloping horse. The eagle and hunter are communicating and crying to each other. At full speed the eagle comes down. When the eagle catches the meat, both eagle and hunter become very relaxed. The fastest eagle and hunter wins the competition.
