‘Gala of the Royal Horses’ Makes a Stop in Midland
A unique event straight from Europe made a stop in Midland this past weekend.
According to NewsWest 9, the "Gala of the Royal Horses" is a world tour that shows off world-famous horses from Europe.
This weekend it stopped into the Midland County Horseshoe Arena and the gala celebrates the tradition and athleticism of the animals through dances and tricks set mostly to Spanish Music.
Rene Gasser is the spokesman for the tour and explained the horses "dancing" like this: "It's actually traditionally worked for the military, the movements actually look like the horses are dancing. So, we're creating dancing horses with these movements. You're going to see horses dancing, prancing and standing on their back legs. Not only that, but you can see the beautiful costumes that we use in Europe. The traditional gear of the saddles that are 600 years old are still the same saddles we're using today."
The world tour has already been to 250 cities and hopes to return next year.
