...just to see this amazing show!
The horses! They are not puppets, they're REAL!!
Or, at least, the puppeters where so good, and the puppets so well made, that you literally forget it and belive you're looking somethig alive!
I'm still speechless and looking forward another flight to double-up the experience.
