The magnificent white stallions of Spain are dancing their way to New Zealand in January, February and March 2012 in the fully choreographed arena spectacular El Caballo Blanco: The Dance of the White Stallions.
The show is led by world-renowned riding master Rene Gasser who, with the experiences of seven generations, has recreated an event only previously seen at the famous riding schools in Vienna and Spain.
The horses of Spain are some of the most celebrated in history, favoured for centuries by European royalty, equestrian riders and bullfighters and this performance will celebrate the tradition, athleticism and grace of these revered creatures.
Along with the magnificent stallions, the show will also feature Spanish flamenco dancers in authentic vibrant costumes and the mellow notes of a guitar to bring the sights and sounds of Spain a heartbeat away.
In the south of Spain, the tradition of flamenco dancing is rivalled only by the tradition of breeding fine Spanish horses and Rene Gasser says the breeds have been featured in portraits with European royalty, used in multiple movies and are extremely popular among riders.
El Caballo Blanco: The Dance of the White Stallions will feature a number of performances involving the Andalusian, Friesian, Lipizzaner and Arabian breeds and the event is dedicated to showing off the amazing beauty and manoeuvres these horses are capable of.
