The Azerbaijan Equestrian Team has confirmed that, for reasons beyond its control, the ‘Land of Fire’ Azerbaijan display will no longer be able to be performed on Monday. Both the Show and the Azerbaijan Equestrian Team are extremely disappointed that they will not be able to showcase their display to the Olympia audience.

Instead, The Devil’s Horsemen, a word renowned stunt team currently working on the new Star Wars film, will provide a high octane and daring display with the rare opportunity to witness enthralling film-set stunts and tricks in real life.

In the FEI Dressage World Cup™ (Grand Prix) each competitor performs the same dressage test and the best score wins. Dressage involves a horse and rider carrying out a sequence of highly skilled movements from memory, demonstrating the power and elegance of the horse and is described as ‘the ultimate expression of horse training’ by the FEI. Each movement is scored out of 10 and the test is awarded an overall percentage.
