A new Guinness-record was born at the Hungarian Capital Circus of Budapest. As borsonline.hu reports, the 17-year-old Kevin Richter circled around on the top of two horses while holding bridles in his hands.
About the record
The young gentleman started riding on the top of two horses in a straddling position, then, as all the other horses ran underneath him, he caught their bridles. In the end, he was holding 20 horses altogether! Kevin also shared more details, for example, that he had been practising for the production for a year. Furthermore, this performance was originally his mother’s, so he inherited it. As for the future, he wants to go to the Monte Carlo Circus Festival. István Sebestyén, corroborant of the Hungarian Guinness-records, gave the document of proof to Kevin.
The talented young boy told Bors that he believes, he grew up differently than others children. He was 6 months old when he sat on a horse for the first time, 5 when he stood up on one and 6 when he could already leed a pony in the circus ring. He did not play with toy cars like other boys at his age, animals meant the world to him. When he was 12, he already helped to take apart and build the circus tent.
Even though Kevin was born in a circus dynasty, he thinks that he could have chosen another profession as well. There are many reasons for doing so: at the circus, there are no parties or idleness. Every day starts at 7 am with taking care of the animals. Moreover, members of the circus are very busy because they have to practice very hard before the actual shows.
