Have you ever experienced the beauty of an aerial and equestrian dance event by international performers? The power and control exhibited is truly breathtaking. Enchanted Dancing Horses with Sylvia Zerbini and Friends features the world-renowned equestrian Sylvia Zerbini and her herd of dancing horses. Sylvia, whose home is in Florida, is bringing a herd of 15 magnificent horses to Santa Ynez to dance for the healing power of horses.
Sylvia will demonstrate the unique connection she has with her herd through performing at liberty, and will be joined by aerial entertainers formerly from Cavalia and Cirque du Soleil. Share the beauty and healing power of the horse/human connection through the marvel of movement and music.
