Cossack Trick Riding

"The Devil's Horsemen" and the origin of our famous troupe's name. The Cossacks originated on the great Russian Steppe, successors and descendants of the Golden Horde and Genghis Khan who staged the only successful Winter invasion of Russia in history.

The horsemanship of the Mongol Cavalry was the most effective in Military history. Now in peace time these battle techniques have been transformed into acrobatics on horseback. Our riders need more than just physical fitness, gymnastic ability and a taste for danger, they have to have a willing accomplice in the form of a horse who enjoys tearing along a full gallop, while it's rider is hanging at impossible angles from it's back, or vaulting, or even standing on the saddle!
