The Devil’s Horsemen

Camilla Naprous and the Devil’s Horsemen stunt team will be back once again to perform two amazing Cossack stunt shows on Saturday 27 June.

In 2013 they wowed the crowds with daredevil stunts, racing and high speed action.

Their horses enjoyed the sand and the surf so much that they have taken a break between film sets to journey down to Watergate Bay. With over 70 horses, each highly trained in various stunts and staring in films like War Horse, Braveheart and Les Miserables, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Macbeth, Wolf Hall, Philomena, Camilla and her team will be bringing a selection of horses and riders to perform top class stunts and acrobatics… and a little bit more!

The Cossacks originated on the great Russian Steppe, successors and descendants of the Golden Horde and Genghis Khan who staged the only successful winter invasion of Russia in history.
The horsemanship of the Mongol Cavalry was the most effective in military history. Now in peace time these battle techniques have been transformed into acrobatics on horseback. The riders need more than just physical fitness, gymnastic ability and a taste for danger, they have to have a willing accomplice in the form of a horse who enjoys tearing along a full gallop, while it’s rider is hanging at impossible angles from it’s back, or vaulting, or even standing on the saddle!
