         The technology of horse domestication revealed in the north of modern Kazakhstan led to the formation of an equestrian culture, certain items of which were later borrowed by other peoples around the world. The First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan – Elbasy in the program article "Seven Facets of the Great Steppe" highlighted the concept of equestrian culture as a comprehensive definition of all nomadic communities from ancient times.
         The culture of the inhabitants of the steppe spaces of Kazakhstan, along with natural and climatic conditions, began to take shape during the Eneolithic and Bronze Age. One of the most ancient archaeological cultures that influenced further historical processes is the Botai culture, discovered by the outstanding archaeologist V. F. Seibert in 1980 on the right bank of the Iman-Burluk River in the North Kazakhstan region.
