On Saturday April 30th The Horse Boy USA team was invited to a do a demo at The Centex Horse Festival - an annual event that promotes horse and outdoor activities for our youth.
The event included demonstrations from jumpers, drill teams and barrel racers however the stars of the show were of course our very own Marvel and Spirit.
Marvel and Spirit quickly captured the audiences hearts when they demonstrated their moves to a background of heavy metal and load applause. The high point of the show was undoubtably when Iliane on Marvel welcomed Emilie to come and ride with them. Emilie is on the autism spectrum and was over from France for the second year in a row with her mother Nadege to spend some time at The Horse Boy Foundations main site in Elgin, Texas. After demonstrating how his terre-a-terre canter could be used during battle Marvel then showed the audience how we now use this very collected canter to heal.
Later on in the show Iliane and Erin challenged one of the drill teams to a bareback race which turned into a sword fighting and bareback jumping competition. Needless to say The Horse Boy Girls came out on top, mainly due to the talents of their noble steeds.
