Believe in Magic

I finally got the best Christmas present ever this weekend!  My awesome best friend bought tickets for us to go to Cavalia's show Odysseo and I loved every minute of it!

I didn't take pictures of the actual show both because they didn't want it and because I really didn't want to interrupt my own experience by trying to get a good picture! And there was constantly something to watch and enjoy.

My personal highlights...
  • The crazy amount of vaulting! I've always admired the sport of vaulting but these horses and riders took it to another level.
  • Jumping! They set up a bunch of different jumping exercises, and again took it to another level. I recognized most of the exercises and loved seeing them executed so well, at and impressive speeds!
  • Acrobatics... Another thing I always find pretty amazing - and this was some of the best work I've seen. 
  • The live music was great!  I always love good music and this was beautiful - and completely live.  Pretty cool ;)

Have you ever been to see Cavalia, or something similar?  What did you think? :)


  1. I went and saw Cavalia back in the 8th grade. Oh my goodness it was so awesome! It's actually what got me interested in doing natural horsemanship. They are just so incredible!

  2. oh so cool!!! a barn mate recently saw this show and loaned me the 'behind the scenes' video of it. it's really amazing work they do with the horses!

  3. I haven't been, but I want to go soooo bad!!! I'm so glad you got to go and had fun. :D
