Trick-Riding looks daring and spectacular – but everybody can learn the techniques. Through this training you will not only improve your balance, strength and body-awareness but also your confidence. The excercises will be tailored according to your individual abilities and fitness. The overall goal is to have fun, to improve your riding skills and to boost your confidence. Under Elbrus’ supervision, you can be sure that you will not be overtaxed. In this seminar you will also learn about horsemanship and liberty training, which are essential components of Trick-Riding. At the end of the course, all participants will put together a show to perform and demonstrate their newly acquired skills. And who knows, maybe you will one day perform along side of Elbrus in a motion picture…

LTF will be hosting this exclusive event twice a year in February and November.

About the trainer:
Elbrus grew up in Ossetia where he excelled in Jigitovka. Jigitovka was used by the horse cavalry in war time and the riding style was developed to use against the enemy in battle. It later became an art form and a horse sport which has been used in the entertainment industry. Elbrus joined the Moscow State Circus School at age 15 and went on to work with the Moscow State Circus for several years. He then joined a horse-stunt theatre with Muhtarbek Kantimirov and they performed together entertaining audiences all around Europe. Elbrus and his wife later settled in South Africa and began training horses and working on various television commercials and feature films including 10,000 BC and The Flight of the Phoenix as a stunt rider and performer. He is a martial-arts trainer and has performed in many fight scenes. More infos: http://filmequus.co
