Has anyone seen this show? They had it on the Pittsburgh PBS station last Saturday and it looked interesting. It was sort of a collection of equine acts set to music. There were trick riders, dressage riders and horses working at liberty. It's hard to know just what to call it, there wasn't any real theme to the show, nor were they the usual circus acts.
The show is from Europe and will be doing a U.S. tour which will be in Pittsburgh, PA in September.
The station showed about half of the 90 minute video, which didn't impress me. I think whoever was doing the editing of the video was trying to be artsy by constantly changing the camera angles. I have an attention span of more than 2 seconds and I lose interest they change the camera angles so quickly. An example would be to see the horse head on starting over a jump, then a side view going over the jump, then a rear view of the horse landing. Then they'd switch views from the horses to the violinist and the dancers who were in the arena with the horses. I also would have liked to have had some comentary about the horses, their trainers and the story they were telling.
There were a couple of big draft horses who did some dressage, a horse who did one of the airs above ground in hand, and an act where the horses were running free on a beach with the trainer.
