The independent non-commercial organization Kremlin Equestrian School

Boris Petrov, General Director

The independent non-commercial organization Kremlin Equestrian School was founded in 2006 under the aegis of the Superintendent Service of the Moscow Kremlin of the Federal Guard Service of the Russian Federation.

The motto of the School, as reflected in its main mission, is «Put culture and horse riding traditions at the service of the people». The main goals of the school are to revive equestrian customs as a component of Russian culture, while educating young people and instilling love for the homeland, and promoting equestrian sports as part of a healthy lifestyle.

A special equestrian children’s ceremony has arisen thanks to collaboration between the Kremlin Equestrian School and the Cavalry Escort of the Presidential Regiment. This group takes part in a number of state events, which include mounting of the horse guard and foot guard at Sobornaya Square in the Moscow Kremlin.

The pride of the School is its joint team with the Cavalry Escort of the Presidential Regiment that engages in applied forms of military equestrian sports. The team puts on an acrobatic trick riding (jigitovka) show to demonstrate traditions of equestrian culture among Russia’s various ethnic groups, which goes hand in hand with a love for horses.

The horse riders of the Kremlin Equestrian School have attained amazing mastery in the art of handling various types of Cossack weapons and acrobatic tricks.

A horse riding arena is erected every year for shows on Red Square. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of Muscovites and guests of the capital have attended these vibrant shows, which have become a hallmark of the Spasskaya Tower events.
