London, OH, August 3, 2017–It’s the kind of news that makes a horse lover’s heart sing. Once again Equine Affaire® is pleased to confirm three consecutive nights, November 9-11, of its blockbuster “musical celebration of the horse” known and loved as the Fantasia at the Eastern States Exposition in W. Springfield, MA. The Fantasia is a choreographed spectacle of showmanship that never fails to leave Standing Room Only audiences singing along to musical scores from country to classical to contemporary, and leaving with full hearts and renewed conviction in the beauty, nobility, strength and devotion of the horses and ponies that share our lives.
From the exhilarating derring-do of Bobby Kerr and his mustangs to mesmerizing Lusitanos taking flight in airs above the ground, the theatrical showmanship of Pirate-costumed Friesians, and the natural beauty of horses performing at liberty with world-renowned trainer and entertainer Sylvia Zerbini, the 2017 Fantasia will be a two-hour feast for the senses that will be the perfect way to cap off a day of shopping at the largest all-horse trade show of its kind and taking in Equine Affaire’s array of educational forums, clinics and demonstrations.
Historically drawing sold-out crowds nightly to the Eastern States Exposition’s historic Coliseum, the Fantasia is the equestrian entertainment cornerstone of Equine Affaire. The show is again generously underwritten by Absorbine®, aka the W.F. Young Company, which was founded in 1892 in nearby East Longmeadow by Mary Ida and Wilbur Young as they developed a humane method of treating lameness in their own beloved horses. Absorbine® celebrates its own milestone this season with 125 years of caring for animals.
The Fantasia will start nightly at 8:00pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, with doors opening at 7:15pm. Tickets are just $14 to $25 and are available online at www.equineaffaire.com or by contacting Equine Affaire. Advance tickets are on sale through November 7; any remaining tickets are then available for purchase at Equine Affaire starting at 9:00am, Thursday, November 9, at the Information Booth in the Better Living Center.
