I attended the show today and had a good time. I think they did a good job of making it appeal to all of the audience members because there was something there for everyone. Face painting, concessions, glow-toys, and reasonably-priced photo ops made it more...More

The show was very entertaining! Very professional like a Las Vegas show not a small town one. The entertainers really enjoy performing they’re not just playing a part.

The human performers and the horses do a fantastic show. The birds are also fantastic. A nice reasonable gift shop. Skip the dinner.

I went to see the Dancing Horses & mini zoo. There were several great shows- I liked the Bubbles one, The miniature horses & the family story. I would recommend this for any age.

We have been to Dancing Horses 2 times now in past 3 years. Enjoyed the horse show a lot both times! We also liked hanging out in the petting area and feed the pregnant donkeys and the goats.

The Theatre is very wheelchair friendly. First row of seats around the performance area is on the ground floor. Other rows are just 2 steps up. All seating is comfortable and close-up.
