Turkmen horsemen were awarded the “Commonwealth Cup” in the International Tournament in Bishkek on May 27-29, in the framework of World Cup of the Central Asian Show Jumping League.
The competitions in equestrian sports were held in the arena of the Republican Specialized Youth School of the Olympic Reserve with participation of the strongest athletes of Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan. Our riders on Akhalteke horses, representing the National Equestrian Centre, showed the best results, taking first and second places.
Thus, Hanjarmyrat Dyshikov on the Oguzkent stallion was first to overcome the 1.20 meters high obstacles. The second was jockey Nikolai Beglaryan on Toichy horse.
The third prize winner was the hosting team.
The Turkmen horsemen’s success in the prestigious competition testifies to their growing skill, which is of special importance in view of the fact that show jumping was introduced not long ago in our country. The inclusion of this sport on the initiative of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov in the Programme of V Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games – 2017 gave a powerful incentive to this process.
Accordingly, logistical and training-methodological base of this equestrian sport has been strengthened considerably. Recently, during the celebrations on the occasion of Turkmen Horse Holiday a new outdoor show jumping arena was inaugurated with participation of the Turkmen leader at the Ashgabat Equestrian Complex.
The new facility includes a show jumping ground for competitions more than 8.2 thousand square meters in size and a training field. The area, structure and equipment of the ground make it possible to hold international tournaments.
Two years ago a Training Centre was commissioned there with an indoor riding hall, equipped with multimedia technologies, simulators and horse modulators for jockeys.
International show jumping tournaments became traditional in our country, organized along with races and horse marathon in honor of Turkmen Horse Day.
Our skilled riders are trained in show jumping by Katharina Jacob from Germany. According to this coach, the level of Turkmen riders during their joint work has reached a high level. In the remaining time before the Asian Games-2017 they only need to keep up the work pace and take part in the international tournaments as frequently as possible.
