Karabakh horses stun audience at Royal Windsor Show
Royal Windsor Horse Show has featured an exciting performance of the Equestrian Federation of Azerbaijan. The federation returns to Windsor, having previously performed at Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration in 2016, with their new performance 'Land of Fire – Azerbaijan'.
Azerbaijan’s participation at Royal Windsor Horse Show was co-organised by The European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS) and the Azerbaijan Equestrian Federation, and supported by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Azerbaijan.
The display celebrated the Karabakh horse, the native horse of Azerbaijan. Horse and rider combinations combined fast paced movements with tight turns and perfectly timed executions. They were accompanied by the ‘Sarhadchi’ dance ensemble who performed traditional dances alongside fire-jugglers performing a spectacular fire show. The performance, choreographed specifically for Royal Windsor Horse Show, demonstrated the strength and bravery of the Karabakh horse, and the courage and peacefulness of the Azerbaijan people, AzerTAc reported.
Since 2012 Karabakh horses have been successfully representing Azerbaijan at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
The delegation of the Azerbaijan Equestrian Federation met with Queen Elizabeth II, and presented her a bronze sculpture of the Karabakh horse.
