Limestone County Fairgrounds is familiar with equestrian talent: from holding successful Multi-County Youth Invitational Horse Shows to hosting training sessions for the reigning United States Equestrian Drill Team Champions, Prime Time Express, many citizens of the county understand and appreciate a good horse show. Equestrian performance in Limestone County is sure to reach new heights on May 17, when The Gala of Royal Horses presents a show with horses and riders from all over the world.

“We work so hard with our horses to do this show, and they’re the most beautiful horses you’ve ever seen,” said Riding Master and producer of the show Rene Gasser. “I think the moment we come in with the horses and hear the audience’s reaction is always one of the best parts. Just to get the feedback from the audience for all we work for.”

That’s not to say that there aren’t some special tricks Gasser can’t wait to perform for the enjoyment of the crowd. The Gala of The Royal Horses will include performances that feature the Lipizzaner Stallions, the Spanish Andalusian, Friesian, and the majestic Arabian breeds, as well as the recently added Quarter horse. The event is dedicated to showing off the amazing beauty and maneuvers these horses are capable of including the stunning maneuvers once used on the battlefield now known as “The Airs Above the Ground”, The “Art of Garrocha" and "Roman Riding". Gasser stated that horse-lovers enjoy the show but those without equestrian experience also find it thrilling.
