The Kremlin Equestrian Riding School is a modern equestrian complex created to revive the tradition and culture of horseback riding and encourage a healthy lifestyle among Russian youths. In 2011 the School’s team performed at the Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival in Moscow’s Red Square, and in May 2012 jockeys from the Kremlin Equestrian Riding School performed at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of the coronation of Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II.
