“Best show we went to in Branson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Very tasty meal is served to visitors, including chicken, pork loin, etc. The best part is the show. Great trick riders, wagon races, just a bit of comedy and singing, and gorgeous horses. Will do this one again. Christmas show was really nice too.

“Excellent animal show with great horsemanship”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Tons of fun. A great show of horsemanship. And other animal events.

When we arrived we walked past all the beautiful horses in their stables. They could care less about their human visitors. They were all nodding off or doing other horse things. They had a breed called the American White Horse which I never heard of but was beautiful. Pure white naturally. There were huge Belgian horses too that we're gorgeous and weighed over 2000 pounds.

There was a pre show with a juggler. This fellow was a national champion and it showed. He did not do the normal juggling. He took balls and spun them on top of one another. Climbed ladders with torches and did all types of crazy stunts. That lasted about 45 minutes.

There were bars and a huge theatre to watch. do not bother buying any snacks to eat or drinks. They charge you in the pre show but when you go in you have so much food and drink that it is hard to even finish it.

Let me see if I can remember. A whole roasted chicken. It looks similar to a Cornish hen but is larger. Plenty of meat. Corn on the cob, potato, biscuit, smoked piece of pork and a great apple turnover for dessert. All the beverage you could want. Too much ice tea for me. I should be up for a week.

In Branson, Christmas begins on November 1st and runs through December. So, this was a Christmas show with all the lights glitz etc. even though I think it is way too early it was nice.

The master of ceremonies comes out on a gorgeous big black horse and starts the show. They have a north vs the south side. Teams of riders come out and do horse races and challenges.

There was a beautiful Nativity scene with real donkeys, a herd of sheep, goats and camels come out. I loved the camels and donkeys. The camels were so well behaved.

They had a baby pig race. How they got those little pigs to run around the track is beyond me. A small horse race. Same thing. I do not know how they do it. A chicken chase and a horse shoe throwing contest. Which were really toilet seats. They pole climbing, wood chopping and log rolling.

Our concierge discouraged us from going when we first arrived. The second concierge said it was the number one show in Branson. So, we went. Children will enjoy if they are older. Young children no. Plus, you have to eat with your hands. No utensils but plenty of napkins and wipes. They also give you a nice hot towel when you are finished your dinner.

Note, it is not gourmet by any stretch but good. I looked at the crowd and was wondering how they cooked for that many people at once.
There were lots of people there.

If you can do the yellow route do it. It takes you completely away from the main drag and all the people.

Enjoy! We did. We even purchased the photo package.

We had dinner at the Dixie Stampede Dinner Theater. It was a lot of fun!! We had never been there before so it was something different too do. They were doing their Christmas show and there was a live Nativity, complete with live camels, sheep and a donkey. In addition there was a lot of action and a lot of laughs! They gave you enough food to feed an army...
