The show’s depth, story, stunts and acrobatics will thrill adults, while the humor, horses and visual captivation will keep kid’s attention. Many of the stars of the show are relatives themselves, carrying on a multi-generational love of equestrianship. The price is family-friendly too, with tickets starting at just $25. Use the promo code FAMILY to receive a fantastic buy three, get one free ticket discount (some restrictions apply).
