Pure Spanish, Arabian, Lusitano, Appaloosa, Criollo, Canadian, Belgian, and Comtois horses… Such a noble line-up can only mean one thing: CAVALIA is in town!
This is an ode to splendour that you will not want to miss!
Accompanied by my fellow Montréal Insider, Daniel Baylis, I headed to Cavalia with the same excitement as a child going to Disneyland. Daniel, on the other hand, was skeptical. Horses? Yes, Dan. Horses. In all their beauty, power and agility.
The show was spectacular! A few minutes in, I took a quick glimpse at Daniel from the corner of my eye…There he was, all smiles, applauding and as captivated by the magic as I was. Needless to say, I felt good about the fact that I could finally say “Told you so.”
The horses? Better groomed than I could ever be. As I watched the stallions and artists interact, combining acrobatic and equestrian disciplines, I suddenly felt taken away by a sense of freedom and moving poetry. I see shows on a regular basis, but this one was totally unlike anything I have ever seen before.
Not experiencing Cavalia when you come to Montréal would be a very serious sin. Combined with a nice dinner beforehand, this makes for a fantastic evening and the perfect occasion to dress up!
Nearly two million people have seen Cavalia, including Larry King, Cindy Crawford, Demi Moore, John Travolta, Diane Keaton, Pierce Brosnan, Paul Abdul, Rod Stewart, Merryl Streep, and hopefully YOU!
