The spirit of the holiday season permeates the upcoming equine entertainment production "The Spirit Of The Horse: A Holiday Equine Extravaganza", which opens Friday at the Kentucky Horse Park's Alltech Arena.
Produced by the KYB-GPE Equine Theater Production Company, the show tells a magical holiday-themed story, all performed on horseback, that includes orphans and villains, reining, dressage, and liberty work.
The show is about an hour long, and promises to keep all ages entertained.
World-class horses, including three-time U.S. Dressage Federation Horse of the Year and Grand Prix-level dressage superstar GP Raymeister, star in the show.
Featured riders include Kim and Yvonne Barteau of KYB Dressage, who have entertained audiences at the Arabian Nights Dinner Theater in Orlando and have appeared on the “Today” show.
Joining them will be Australia's Dan James of Double Dan Horsemanship, a world-renowned entertainer and equine performer.
In addition to the show, guests may purchase tickets for a “meet and greet” with the stars of the production at the holiday Barn Tou
r prior to the show each evening, and tickets are also available for the Post Production Party where guests can enjoy food and drink and, again, mingle with the horse and rider performers.
The performances are Friday and Saturday at 7 pm.
