Their physical beauty and grace, coupled with exceptional courage and nobility make them an object of admiration and a source of inspiration for horse lovers everywhere,” explains Gasser.

Along with the magnificent stallions, Spanish flamenco dancers featuring authentic, vibrant costumes accompanied by the mellow notes of a guitar, bring the sights and sounds of Spain just a heartbeat away.  “We’re going to have horses dancing alongside some tremendous flamenco dancers, and I think people are really going to be excited about watching this,” says Gasser.
