All The Wild Horses . . .

Last week I took my parents to see the show Cavalia in San Francisco for Christmas.

Cavalia is a traveling show from one of the creators of Cirque du Soleil.

If you have seen any of the Cirque du Soleil shows you will recognize the familiar acrobatics, aerialists, music and singing.  What makes this show spectacular is that there is the added element of horses!

The are times in the show where the horses run free with no trainer or rider.  It is pretty cool.

My favorite part of the show is pictured above.  One female trainer and her eight horses.

With simple hand gestures and calls the trainer directs the horses into formation.

The reason this was my favorite part of the show was because there was this one grey horse that I came to the conclusion was the youngest "performer."  He always seemed to be just out of step with the other horses.  And I thought to myself; that would totally be me if I was in this group.  Just a little off step and in my own world.

If Cavalia comes to a city near you it is worth the ticket price of admission.

  1. it was well worth my ticket price. thank you very much just jon. the horses were a wonderful addition. i kept my eyes glued to them. imagine horses actually racing on a stage; very exciting. and if you will notice, your little grey horse is the only one in focus in the picture, because he was playing around when he should have been running with the others.
    thanks again, all seats were good. we have proof of that.
    love, mom
