Owner description: 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.

I have never been to another place like this one. The horses were fabulous, the lunch was good. The smell took some getting used to but I did expect that being in an arena. We also took the backstage tour and got to see some of the horses up close. We had a great time. The petting zoo was fun,... More

The show was amazing. The quality of the costumes was Disney quality. The people who rode the horses were highly trained. I would recommend this show for all ages and all people traveling in the area. I would go again.

"The costumes, the makeup, the techno-scenery, the lights..." Dancing Horses is a delightful combination of top-notch equestrian expertise and equine dressage. The show delivers all of the classic elements that produce spectacle: stunning costumes, popular video footage perfectly-matched to each musical number, performance professionals, and horses that execute a range of maneuvers that are both complex and comedic. For good... More

This show is great to go to with or without children!! Family friendly but a great date event! A combination of a circus, a musical, a horse show, and a zoo. The costumes were awesome! Something to go back to repeatedly. I know I have been there a half-dozen times and looking forward to my next visit. It's that kind... More

The show is excellent. The horses are amazing. The costumes could compete with Las Vegas. I was so surprised that in the little Wisconson town of Delavan that a show of this caliber was available. A must do for kids and grand kids. We also saw the bird show afterward which was very good.

Our family ranged in ages from 7-93 years old. Cost was about 27.50 per adult and I think 10 for the child....there is an extra charge if you pay by credit card.....Everyone enjoyed the dancing horse show. The baby barn was great. We got to "pet" a hedgehog, pig, bunny, calf and so much more.....there was also an albino raccoon... More
