How are the horses cared for?
The well-being of the horses is the primary preoccupation of Cavalia and this is apparent during the show. The horses find pleasure in being on stage and we allow them to express their natural tendency to play. A team of 20 people, including a stable manager, two veterinary technicians, a blacksmith and several grooms, take care of the horses' well-being, including a balanced and personalized diet, a training program, the care of their hooves, etc. The activities in the stables are numerous and each day horses get their share of pampering, including a shower, grooming, massage, outings to the paddocks and workshops with their riders.
How are the horses trained??
There is a real bond and communication between the trainers and the horses. Talking, using finger and body gestures, and clucking their tongues, the trainers make a game out of the routines. This approach is more time-intensive than other methods, but it gives better results.
How long does it take a horse to learn its part?
To train a horse for Cavalia, it can take from six months to ten years depending on the discipline practiced. For Trick Riding, if the horse is not too apprehensive at the start, the training can be done in a few months. For a horse in Haute École dressage or dressage at liberty, the work can take several years.
How many shows does each horse per week?
The rhythm of life at Cavalia is based on the horses. We put on a maximum of seven shows per week and each horse has a replacement. This allows us to give the horses a few days or weeks off as needed, while maintaining the quality of performances. More than 60 horses live in our stables. About forty of them perform regularly in the show, while the others are used as replacements or are in training. When the show is in its "moving period", the horses go off on "holidays" so they can rest and graze peacefully.
Do the horses always perform according to plans?
A real communication is established between the trainer and the horse. The trainer can tell when a horse does not feel like doing something and he will not force the animal.
How are the horses transported?
For short journeys (a few hours), the horses travel in five trailers specially fitted for them and equipped with surveillance cameras. When long distance travel is required, the horses travel by air, in which case they are accompanied by a transport team and a veterinarian.
