From Romans to WW1: Remembering Horses in the History of War
Featuring military techniques and horsemanship used by soldiers in the major wars up to WW1. Our professional trick and stunt riders entertain with Roman Equites riding two horses at once and no stirrups, Medieval Knights showing off their skills with lances and swords and our WW1 Cavalry Officers demonstrating their precision in military drills. Culminating in a Cavalry Charge that spans 2000 years, we say thank you to these brave companions who have seen us through some very dark times.
Light-hearted and entertaining but with a poignant and educational twist; we present our Cavalry Through the Ages! Honouring Horses in War from Romans to WW1 Cavalry Soldiers.
Presented and commentated by our very own Horse Mistress, Catherine Lovatt, who specialises in Horses in History and in particular women riders. See more on her blog here.

To have the full effect of this particular arena display we would recommend the full six or eight horse performance and will require an arena with a minimum size of 60m x 60m (larger if possible). We do have options available for smaller arenas as well including a four horse display so please contact us using our online form or call us to find out more.
We tailor all our shows to individual venues and events to be sure of providing the best possible entertainment for your visitors. We’re family friendly while at the same time giving high energy skilled performances from both stunning horses and great experienced horsemen.
Shows are split into 2 x 30 minute performances or 1 x 45 minute performance per day and this particular show can be combined with our Medieval Jousting Arena Display or our Highwayman Arena Display to provide an educational as well as entertaining element to your main arena programme.
We provide lots of extras including meet and greet with the riders and the horses between shows, site visits and multiple transport options to name a few.
“Thank you so much for entertaining our visitors this weekend, you did a wonderful job!” Operations Manager, Berkeley Castle
