Cavalia was playing here, so (after a ton of research about their humane practices – I almost never attend shows with animals in them) we took Sophie to see it for her birthday.

Think Cirque du Soleil.  With horses.  Some without even a bridle or rider.
If this show travels anywhere near you, do yourself a favor and GO.

Obviously Sophie was over the moon about it.  She now wants to be IN it.  Doing roman riding or trick riding.  God help me.
