Djshighitriding/"Djshighitowka" is considered as one the most favorite act among the audience. The circus-ring is crowded with horses and people. Original riding sequences in a very high speed tempo are varied with energetic dancing. All these factors, together with the amazing costumes and the specific music, form the act into a sheer experience.
