My absolute favorite parts of the show, by the way, were those moments when all these unsaddled, unbridled horses would be running en masse across land or water in graceful formation and suddenly one of them would be like, "Meh, I'm not into this. I'm going to go stand over there and watch. Yep. You guys look great from here!" Or, on one occasion, "I don't feel like running with this group anymore. I like the looks of that group all the way over there. *run* *smash* *SQUEEZE* Yes, this is much better!" The trainers, sometimes laughing, would just adapt the act to accommodate what the rogue horse wanted to do. Oh, and speaking of water: during the intermission, the staff distributed towels to the people sitting in the first row.
After the show, I got to visit the stables!
|A lot of the horses were getting their manes braided after the show...|
|...or getting some love from the riders.|
|Horses are kind of amazing to look at. LOOK AT HIS FACE.|
|This horse really wanted to play.|
|This horse engaged me in a lengthy staring contest.|
He won by a resounding margin.
