Cossack Warriors will be galloping onto the Showground for this year’s Royal County of Berkshire Show!

The Devils Horsemen are delighted to be returning to the Royal County of Berkshire show with their Cossack display of breath-taking, high energy acrobatics on horseback!

With over 40 years’ experience in horsemanship, their displays range from Cossacks to jousting and chariots to the Wild West. They also provide horses and equipment to the film and TV world, with credits such as the Lloyds Bank commercials featuring the famous Black Horse, Game of Thrones, Sky Sports Formula 1 Promotion, the blockbuster hit Wonder Woman and the latest Transformers movie, The Last Knight.

The Devil’s Horsemen was established from the most effective battle tactics in military history, the Mongol Cavalry. They used sturdy, agile and durable horses to conquer lands from China to Hungary, and from northern India to Russia. These battle techniques have now been transformed into acrobatics on horseback, tearing along at full gallop while its rider hangs at impossible angles or standing on the saddle!

The team base their skills on the Cossack riders, who were some of the bravest warriors in the 14th and 15th centuries, and all the trick riding that features in their shows was created to keep them safe on the battle field.

The Devils Horsemen is located at Wychwood Stud in Buckinghamshire; 200 acres of meadow land where the horses live as a herd in the Summer.
