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 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.
