Trick Riding is artistic grace combined with heart stopping dangerous stunts and daredevil tricks. In this extreme sport the rider performs skilful gymnastic manoeuvre's and vaults from their galloping mount. The rider must have a good bond with their equine partner and places full trust in the horse to carry them safely.
Our Trick riding performance combines both the sensational graceful classic tricks such as the hippodrome and spritz standing poised above the saddle, with the devilishly crazy and down right dangerous stunts like the suicide, fender and tail drags. Which as the names imply has the gutsy riders hanging precariously from the side or back of the horse, with no control over their galloping mount just for the fun of seeing the world upside down and wild cheers from the crowd!
Fast horses, pretty girls in glamorous costumes, add dangerous stunts and pumping music, its sure to be a hit with any crowd!
We can accommodate any size event from a single trick rider stunning the crowd to large groups of trick riders, each performing individual tricks seamlessly and effortlessly so the action is non stop, one trick after another of these incredible stunts.
A Trick Riding performance is easy to run in most arenas, trotting tracks, race tracks, festivals and fairs.
Time spans vary and we customise each act for the clients requirements.
