The Kremlin Cossacks
Text and photos by Ian Mitchell

Recently PASSPORT visited the Kremlin Equestrian School at its stables and showground at Krasnogorsk, near Khimki. The occasion was one of the regular, public displays of Cossackstyle riding, which are very impressive indeed. The riders are from the stunt team of the Cavalry Escort to the Presidential Regiment. They will be performing in Red Square at the time of the military tattoo “Spasskaya Bashnaya 2011”, from 1st to 4th September. The school is a commercial organisation, despite its name, which appears to have been “franchised”, partly because the Commandant of the Kremlin Cavalry Guard is a shareholder in the enterprise. Interested potential customers should consult the website: Others should try to get to Red Square for the daytime displays.
