Children’s Competition in Trick and Fancy Riding for the Prize of the «Spasskaya Tower» Festival

Trick and Fancy Riding is a traditional military activity in the national equestrian culture. It was integral to horse soldiers' combat training.

The participants of the children’s sports and fitness program in trick and fancy riding will show their achievements and skills in vaulting at a walk and at trot by performing such elements as flag, lying transverse the saddle, Cossack hang, Cossack drop, stand, standing up in stirrups, scissors, riding the horse’s neck, etc.

Besides, within the framework of the competition the young sportsmen from the Kremlin Equestrian School will give 4 exhibition flanking performances — they will demonstrate their dismounted blade weapons skills.
