War Horse

I was fortunate to be invited to see the War Horse Broadway when it came to Jacksonville, Florida.

What an incredible, once in a lifetime opportunity!

The recreation of the horses was amazing.  I’m not sure if they are considered puppets, or what – but whatever they’re called, after a few minutes it’s hard to believe they’re not real horses.  The head movements and ear flicks are so real.  I told my friend (who isn’t a horse person) that I could see Kobi doing every single one of those movements.  At one point the ‘horse’ even scratched an itch on its side.

We weren’t able to take any pictures inside, but I did find a link to internet pictures to help explain this better.

For those of you wondering, yes – I cried…several times.  But I would see it again in a heartbeat if the opportunity came up and highly recommend everyone see it if you can.

A must see!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
