I love horses. And Cirque du Soleil. So when I heard Cavalia, the “Magical Encounter Between Human and Horse” was coming to town, I knew this was one show I'd have to see.
It may be new to us in Australia, but Cavalia has been around for almost ten years and has been seen by more than three million people in America and Europe. It even popped up in an episode of American Dad that I saw the other day that had me chuckling away (an episode named Adventures in Hayleysitting, no less. You know how I love an adventure.)

So you can imagine how happy I was when the lovely folk at Cavalia's official hotel, Fraser Suites, Sydney, invited me along to try one of their Cavalia VIP packages.
After checking into my suite and soaking up the corner views over Sydney, I was joined by my friend Jason and swept away in a car to the Entertainment Quarter, where Cavalia's signature White Big Top is now in residence.
Just as you can now buy VIP tickets to music festivals, Cavalia sells VIP tickets with backstage passes to meet the horses afterwards. Sure, it may sound a little odd, but after falling in love with them on stage, it really is a treat to meet the stars of the show.
