Description: Enjoy a day full of experience at Wisconsin’s own Dancing Horses, Animal...
Enjoy a day full of experience at Wisconsin’s own Dancing Horses, Animal Gardens. You day begins with The Dancing Horses Theatre presentation of an enchanting NEW performance that is unparalleled anywhere else. From the moment the show opens until the finale, the audiences of all ages sit spellbound, applauding each equine performer and trainer, exclaiming in wonder, chuckling at the humor and even wiping the occasional tear when a moment of connection touches a heartstring. Get up close with the trainers with our newest park feature: the Backstage Tour. During the tour, you are given a demonstration about liberty-style horse training and then you will be invited into the stables to meet the equine performers. Next, as you exit The Dancing Horses Theatre, you enter the 30-minute Exotic Bird Show which follows. Meeting our Exotic Birds is a delightful treat. This performance features several different species of exotic birds that will amaze you with their incredible abilities and antics. Your experience continues with more, a visit to the Baby Animal Barn. The Baby Animal Barn is filled with both domestic and exotic baby animals that children can hold and feed. Our staff is there to answer any questions you may have about our baby animals. In close proximity is an outside petting zoo and several charming rides children will enjoy.You can then take a walk or ride through our Wildlife Exhibit, a natural-setting zoo where you can see animals, many of which are indigenous to Wisconsin. The exhibit culminates in the Deer Park where you can pet and feed white tail deer. You can experience a tractor-pulled wagon ride though the park, where larger animals are available for viewing. You won’t want to miss the train ride though our Indian Village; complete with teepees, Native American art, and oral history lesson about the area’s indigenous people.With the two stunning performances, The Dancing Horses and the Exotic Bird Show, and our animal attractions, this will be a day you will not soon forget and will want to share with everyone.

As the lights lowered and the party light turned on i grew very excited. I looked over at my 4 year old daughter and saw the biggest smile take over her whole face. Suddenly the doors opened and the most majestic white horse covered in glitter came prancing out. My eyes instantly wateted. My sister tapped me on my shoulder... More

My wife and I went to the show on Valentines Day. We bought a Groupon and only paid $18 per ticket. It was a great value! I would have paid more for the show ticket. The length of the show was perfect and there was an intermission to take a picture with a show horse for a small amount of... More

The show was fabulous! My favorites were the act "Liberty" and then "Bad to the Bone". Liberty was breath taking and Bad to the Bone - funny! A summer outing would probably provide more bang for the buck. We purchased the meal with the show. The food wasn't that good, but our server, Suzette was great. Our tickets included the... More

This was a great show - great musical selections, great costumes, great performances by both the horses and their riders. Our granddaughter, who is in the 2nd grade, loved it! We saw the holiday show and she wants to go back for one of the summer shows. However, we did have issues with getting our tickets. I had called before... More

If you're a horse lover and even if not, this is an exceptional 2 hour show for the price!! The horses are beautiful, as well as the performers and the costumes for both the people and the horses are absolutely stunning. An excellent day trip for the whole family if you're within 3 hours to drive. We went in July... More

The young lady doing the show was awesome and had full control and respect of the birds. Great. Grandsons loved it. Also did the backstage tour of the stables and saw the horses up close. The interns leading... More

The costumes and storyline were great. add to that the bird show. It was definitely worth the money spent. The horses do a lot of parading, ie, walking in place, not so much dancing. The little 6-mo old Camelot was very cute.

Both of our granddaughters ages 9 and 6 both love horses. We take them to the Christmas show every year and they love it.

As we drove by we noticed that a show was about to begin so we pulled in at the last minute to watch it. We were seated in the front row and had a perfect view of the horses and dancers. The outfits and acrobats were well done. I wish the horses did a little more dancing but all in... More
