Following in the family footsteps of seven generations, Gasser has recreated a show for this tour only previously seen at the famous riding schools in Vienna and Spain.
The Royal Horses of Europe are some of the most celebrated in history, favored for centuries by royalty, equestrian riders and bullfighters. This performance will celebrate the tradition, athleticism and grace of these revered creatures. Along with the magnificent stallions, Spanish flamenco dancers will be featured in authentic vibrant costumes accompanied by the mellow notes of a guitar to bring the sights and sounds of Spain a heartbeat away.
Gala of The Royal Horses will feature a number of performances involving the Andalusian, Friesian, Lipizzaner and Arabian breeds. The event is dedicated to showing off the amazing maneuvers these beautiful horses are capable of including the stunning maneuvers once used on the battlefield, now known as “The Airs Above The Ground”.
