“In a distant land and time when a man was judged by his courage and honour, his wealth was measured not in gold or rare jewels, but in the quality and ability of his horses.”
Spirit of the Horse is Europe’s largest and most spectacular equestrian theatre show.
Seen by more than a quarter of a million people in the UK and Ireland, Spirit of the Horse combines the extraordinary talents of over 20 horses and their riders in a unique spectacle of equestrian theatre.
Spirit of the Horse
Spirit of the Horse proved so popular it was invited to appear in Dubai, one of the world’s major equestrian centers, and was transported lock, stock, and saddle four thousand miles to the Middle East.
“This show is an ambitious celebration of the special relationship between horse and human. It is a beautifully choreographed combination of human and equine dance.”
