History in the making.......Karl and I were honoured to have been invited to Moscow, Russia on Feb 10-15th 2016 to be the only UK delegates in a conference to set up the first ever International Equestrian Federation for Dzhigitovka.
This is Cossack trick riding and weapons skills from horseback performed in competitions in Russia for the last 10 years.
International competitors for the first time will now be to welcome to compete in this amazing traditional Cossack discipline.
We were invited to bring over a UK team to compete near Moscow in July 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Our riders needed to execute perfect trick riding tricks and be timed on a track and scored but also compete with a Shashka sabre showing cutting skills, shooting off horseback with a bow and revolver, throw knives from horseback and lance skills.
We were delighted year one to bring home a silver medal in Horse Archery and a third place overall.
In 2018 Zana won a bronze medal in the womens section and highest placed female in all the weapons sections overall.
Zana is now Head of International Relations for the International Dzhigitovka Federation, Moscow.
We shall be back competing in 2019!
