I went to see the Dancing Horses & mini zoo. There were several great shows- I liked the Bubbles one, The miniature horses & the family story. I would recommend this for any age.

We have been to Dancing Horses 2 times now in past 3 years. Enjoyed the horse show a lot both times! We also liked hanging out in the petting area and feed the pregnant donkeys and the goats.

The Dancing Horses Theatre show is a combination petting zoo, bird show and horse show. If you get there before the show you can walk around and see, pet and feed the animals. It's a mixed bag of critters. Then you go inside to the...More

The Theatre is very wheelchair friendly. First row of seats around the performance area is on the ground floor. Other rows are just 2 steps up. All seating is comfortable and close-up.
