Edgard Zapashny Comes into the Guiness Book of Records

Daredevil Russian animal tamer Edgard Zapashny has entered the Guinness Book of Records with one of his toughest tricks.

      The one-off horse-riding act features Zapashny and his two female assistants, forming a four-and-a-half-meter “tower” on the backs of two running horses. Physically challenging to the extreme, it involves Edgard balancing on the backs of two running horses with nothing to hold his legs in place, while two women with a total weight of 110 kilos stand on his shoulders.

      That unique acrobatic act was created by brothers Edgard and Askold Zapashny especially for the Guiness Book of Records, and have been polished for almost two years.

      "In accordance with the Guiness Book rules, we were to ride ten meters, but we rode 20 meters. Now I want to show that trick at the International Circus Festival in Izhevsk in March. And we also plan making a "tower" of four people standing on the horses' backs", Edgard Zapashny told the press.

      Famed for their legendary lion-taming skills, Zapashny Brothers’ circus has already made it into the Guinness Book of Records in 2006. Back then Askold Zapashny performed a trick with a lion called Michael. The animal jumped a distance of almost three meters from one two-meter-wheel to another, with the tamer on his back.
