Episode #6 - Cirque Du Soleil's Cavalia

When the famous Cirque Du Soleil announced it was bringing a first of its kind horse-human show to Calgary, we knew we had to film that! On media day, the trailers arrived with Cavalia's horses who were unloaded one by one. It was as if they were celebrities and they knew it. Each one paraded into their tent barn like they were walking Hollywood's red carpet. Cavalia examined the relationship between horses and humans in a way no other performance had.

The big tops at Cavalia were the largest tents to be erected for a travelling show in Canada. They housed the almost 90 horses of Cavalia, a Cirque Du Soleil production that showcased the deep connection between humans and horses. A true spectacle of partnership! #cavalia #horsesmouthtv #horse #equus #bigtop

Linus and Cricket's story started out a very challenging one. Run through the auction mart as wee babies, they were adopted by Bear Valley Rescue. That's where the story gets good. A kind soul from Cirque Du Soleil's Cavalia saw our Horse's Mouth TV story on BVR in their hotel room on Shaw Cable, contacted them directly & after a visit to BVR, adopted these two geldings. A happy Ending! #horserescue #bvr #cavalia #horsesmouthtv #horse #geldings #cutehorse #rescue
