The Kremlin's horse riding school presents a show prepared for Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee celebrations. More than 500 horses representing 17 countries will take part in the show.
Performers from the Kremlin School of Horseback Riding on Monday practice their stunts for an upcoming show in honor of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee celebration.
The riders performed a number of stunts to various musical scores that included clanging church bells and the well-known song "Kalinka," composed by a Russian folklorist in the 1800's.
[Pavel Polyakov, Captain, Kremlin School of Riders]:
"I want to wish all the participants of this unique show, this unique event, success. In this event we want to perform in front of the whole world, to strengthen world friendship, to show our traditions which have been preserved, and expand our own culture."
Polyakov also said that over 500 horses from 17 different countries would take part in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration.
The Diamond Jubilee Pageant, marking 60 years of Queen Elizabeth's reign, is slated to take place at the Windsor Castle in England from May 10-13.
