Intermission at The Fantasia was a chance to rake the ring and set up for the rest of the show.
The first act after the Intermission was called Take You Higher. It was clear from the set up that it would involve jumping but I wasn’t expecting the show that we got.
Did you know that a miniature horse can jump just about as high as a full sized horse?
That’s what this little demonstration was all about. First the miniatures , then the full size. Then the bar was raised and around they went again.
As I recall the bar was raised 3 times before they started knock the top rail off.
The Friesian Spectacular was a real crowd pleaser. Clay Maier rode one horse while driving a 2nd.
It’s pretty amazing to see the coordination between the two horses and one rider
But just in case that wasn’t exciting enough for you, The Canadian Cowgirls were back.
Their show was exciting enough to be the finale.
You know, the last song or dance in a show that brings everyone to their feet?
But there was one last segment.
And then it was time to fight the crowds and the cold and the traffic and head for home.
I apologize for the poor quality of some of the photos. I need much more expensive equipment to avoid so much noise in low light situations, but even with the shortcomings, I had to share.
