Azerbaijan and ‘Land of Fire’ display at Olympia 2018

Organisers of the UK’s largest indoor show, Olympia, the London International Horse Show, are delighted to announce that Karabakh riders from Azerbaijan will perform their display, ‘Land of Fire’ at the ever-popular equestrian event, taking place from 17-23 December 2018. ‘Land of Fire’ was created by the Azerbaijan Equestrian Federation to showcase the unique abilities of the country’s native Karabakh horse. The display was first performed in front of HM The Queen at the BAFTA award-winning Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations, where it captured the imagination and hearts of the audience. 

 

At Olympia, ticket holders can expect fast-paced movements and artistry as the horse and rider combinations display their exceptional bond. This year’s act will not only incorporate action-packed riding but is also set to include an exhilarating acrobatic, Cossack style element, exclusively put together for Olympia 2018.  A unique dance ensemble the ‘Sarhadchi’ will be intertwined, performing traditional dances alongside the talented horses.
