Gala of the Royal Horses captures the amazing beauty and maneuvers of the baroque horse breeds of Europe favored by Royalty with performances that include Andalusians, Friesians, Lipizzaners, and Arabian stallions. These extraordinary and romantic horses are some of the most celebrated in history, favored for centuries by royalty, warriors and bullfighters and this performance will celebrate the tradition, athleticism and grace of these revered creatures.
