Competitions on Russian Troika

Why are people so attracted to riding on threes?
Well, first, your speed. Once Russian Troika were the main way and means of transportation of passengers and mail. Good horses overcome on a good road almost on kilometer in a minute!

The all-Union record – 2 minutes 56.6 seconds at a distance of 2400 meters – was set in 1977 by P. Popov on a three with a black korennik Sandpaper. And 1600 meters, the other three were even in 1.54,2.

This result was achieved in 1978 O. MITAS (Wheeler gray Signal).

Competitions on the Russian Troika entered the program of all-Union competitions of equestrians of collective farms, stud farms and state farms and national Championships. In determining the winners are taken into account the performance, sledding and beauty of the harnesses.

All three horses must be of the same suit. Medium – Wheeler – in the shafts with a yoke and an arc, side – crotch – only clamps and attached to the wagon forward. Wheeler provides direction, keeps crew on the descents. He runs a beautiful trot at high speed, while the stragglers gallop. Ah, what an exciting sight!

All, apparently, saw three runs – the snow under his hooves, with the sleigh breaker of white dust. The horse of the same suit, Wheeler in the centre proudly raised his head, crotch in different directions rings twist, “snow eating”, as they say. Beauty!

And for this we need to achieve systemnote horses. Wheeler is the most handsome, powerful of the three, the soloist should run trot and steer the horse, crotch, who bear the brunt, to gallop. On a quick turn if crotch honestly pull the crew, and not run idle, padegimas under Wheeler, the latter remains only the legs to move. That’s what is great Congress – high art, which is achieved by extensive experience and years of training.
