I am not a horse person.
I like horses and have even ridden them over the years but I donít count as a real horse person who understands the nuance of a horse. But that doesnít matter. I went to the opening of Cavalia this week and it blew me away. It was amazing. It was beautiful. The horses are amazing and beautiful but the training, even to this untrained eye, was mind-blowing. I know those horses were doing things that are so difficult that it was unreal. The riders are obviously amazing ó they defy gravity and have to balance sideways and upside down at death-defying speeds that makes you cheer. And the acrobats always defy reality. But the horses! And it is all done gently. Observing the rapport between the performers and the horses was the best part of all.
If you are a horse person, go see Cavalia. If you aren’t a horse person, go see Cavalia!
