Behind the Scenes with Cavalia in DC

By Kitson

This morning I had the chance to step into the world of Cavalia before the show opens on October 9. I interviewed a young rider (more on that later) and got to watch the horses' first workout since arriving in DC after two weeks of vacation after their Boston show. Check it out:
The tents have a special suspension system and stand 125 feet tall (the size of a 10-story building).

Coming off a two-week vacation can be tough.

The first day back to work involved 100 percent ground work.

The show has 64 horses representing 11 different breeds including paints, quarter horses, Arabians, Appaloosas, and Pura Raza Espanol.
Cute buckskin wanted to stop and chat.

Change of direction... adorable horse on the left who caught my eye every time he came around (that's him below, also).

The 60+ horses of the show are all geldings and stallions from come from Spain, Portugal, France, The Netherlands, Germany, the U.S. and Canada.
