“LaOra” – The new HOP TOP Show for EQUITANA 2019
The Greek philosopher Plato once wrote that, “Time is the moving image of eternity”. “LaOra”, the new HOP TOP SHOW for EQUITANA 2019, will, however, stop time for two hours as both leading stars and newcomers to the equestrian show scene take to the arena once more on 9th March with new, spectacular and breathtaking performances.
“LaOra” (Time) will amaze audiences with its vast array of new and original ideas, featuring inspiring liberty dressage, quadrilles, dazzling acrobatics on horseback, colourful performances with ponies, and classical elements from the worlds of dressage, show-jumping and carriage-driving. The main focus, however, is always on the deep bond that exists between horse and human and the subtle communication between the two, relying solely on virtually imperceptible signals.
Once again, established stars and newcomers from all over Europe have been chosen to appear in "LaOra" and will present their latest exclusive performances in Essen.
Featured artists include Alma Vaquera from France, the show discovery of the year. Sisters Isaora and Jezabel Marques, aged just 15 and 18, will be appearing with their fresh interpretation of the traditional art of garrocha riding. Firmly anchored in the doma vaquera tradition, the two sisters put a lot of passion and creativity into their performances.
Big horses mean big emotions: Guillaume Mauvais will show with his 10 Comtois horses just how fleet of foot and agile a classic draft horse can be.
The Friesian Show Team from Austrian will be demonstrating in “Moments in Black” how they can light up an arena with their ‘black pearls’.
The big finale features Lorenzo - the flying Frenchman and show legend - and who seems to guide his grey Lusitanos on invisible threads. Like so many other performers, Lorenzo has also prepared a brand new performance this year, especially for “LaOra”.
New: the HOP TOP Show will be featuring on five evenings this year
The new production of the TOP HOP Show for EQUITANA 2019 builds on the successes of previous years. Due to the fact that shows were regularly virtually sold out in the past, we have decided to hold five instead of four performances in 2019.
If you want to be there when the new HOP TOP SHOW once again raises the equestrian show bar just that little bit higher, then make sure that you book your ticket early. “LaOra” will be premiered on Saturday, 9th March, with four additional performances to follow on 10th, 13th, 15th and 16th March. Tickets are available from www.hop-top-show.com or www.equitana.com.
