  • Short Summary

    Cossacks in great display of daredevil horseback riding.

  • Description

    Cossacks.

    Russia / Soviet Union.

    Cossack daredevil horseback riding display. First a guy on horse charges out; carrying flag (unrecognisable); right behind him are two horses w/ riders holding up another man above and between them - which means they have to stay riding exactly lined up. The guy balancing on top is brandishing a sword as they all gallop across field.

    Next; a display of more riding talent - or else a game; contest; sport - in which a guy; riding a galloping horse; swings himself to one side of horse; touching ground with his feet; then jumps back up; then repeats the feat on the other side. This is absolutely insane at this speed; incredibly dangerous. Very impressive. Brave or crazy. (Snow on ground; hills w/ trees in BG; big square building in BG rt.)
