I was SOOO excited to get a media pass (courtesy of the Mane Event Expo) for a sneak photographic preview of Cavalia’s new show ODYSSEO! And I have to say that is was probably the most challenging photo assignment I have had all year, and possibly the most exciting! As a rider myself, it was wonderful to watch the finely honed relationships between the humans and horses.  There were many stunts where the riders were trusting their mounts with safety of life and limb, and other parts of the performance that were pure finesse of inter-species communication.
ODYSSEO is performing through January 12th 2014 in Vancouver.
