‘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.
Simon Brooks-Ward, Show Director commented:
“We are thrilled to have ‘Land of Fire’ Azerbaijan on board for Olympia this December. Their performance will be adding something really special to the line-up with a few added twists for spectators to look out for.”
The other international act to take the stage at Olympia Horse Show will be La Garde Républicaine and its famous cavalry regiment, one of the most talked about branches of the French Gendarmerie. La Garde Républicaine will be showcasing their renowned ‘Reprise des Douzes’, meaning ‘the resumption of twelve’, a spectacular ensemble of twelve chestnut horses performing to music.
Further to the stellar line-up of displays, the UK’s leading Show will once again host the world’s leading riders across a range of international competitions, including three FEI World Cup™ competitions in Dressage, Show Jumping and Carriage Driving. Crowds can also expect to catch Olympia classics such as the Osborne Refrigerators Shetland Pony Grand National, the Kennel Club Dog Agility and the Christmas Finale supported by The Hilton London Olympia.
