I’ve mentioned my passion for horses a lot, but I try not to talk to you about them every week even though they cross my mind all the time. My mom lived and breathed horses, and she ensured that the passion for them was passed on to me. She invested in many different horse riding instructors for me when I was very young to ensure it would become a hobby that we would do together. It wasn’t until I was 13 years old that I got the horse that captured my heart and turn me into a “horse person.” However, once Tripp came into my life, my life changed completely! I did everything under the sun with him. I trained him and we formed a bond that is hard to explain to a non-horse person. However, we had total trust in one another. I could perform all kinds of stunts on his back. When I found out that The Gala of the Royal Horses was coming to Columbia, SC at the Colonial Life Arena I reached out to see if Tidbits of Experience could cover the event.
I got to capture that video this morning when I was given the chance to meet Rene Gasser and a fellow rider. (I didn’t show a more impressive stunt from the horses and riders because I want you to go to the event with me!) I was able to learn more about what makes The Gala of the Royal Horses event unique. One thing I immediately found out is this horse event is unique compared to the other horse shows that tour across the United States in that they include a wide range of different breeds of horses including the famous Andalusian, Friesian, Lipizzaner, and Arabian horse. They have also made sure that their show includes talented showcases of horses, dancers, and riders.
Here is another sneak peek video for you to see even more:
Rene Gasser is the riding master who has kept this seven year generation dream alive. The entire staff has been performing these shows for the past 15 years. However, in this is the first year that they have been performing throughout the United States. The Columbia, SC event held at the Colonial Life Arena on November 30th at 3pm is the last one they are going to perform for the season. This is the perfect gift to give to that horse lover (s) in your family. To be honest, anyone is sure to love this show because it’s a specular display of showmanship.
You can purchase your tickets starting at $27.00 a piece by visiting the Box Office inside the Colonial Life Arena or visiting their website. You can also call 1-855-456-2849 to purchase them. Again The Gala of the Royal Horses will be showing on Sunday, November 30 at 3pm. You can gain more information from the Colonial Life Arena staff through social media on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or even follow the hashtag #GalaofHorsesCLA to follow along with the action of this event.
Do you have a horse lover in your family that would enjoy this event as much as I plan to?
