Spanish “royals” will make their North American debut when they trot into Kissimmee.

The Gala of the Royal Horses will feature both Spanish horses and flamenco dancers, performing side-by-side to musical accompaniment.

Creator, producer and leader of the gala Rene Gasser said in a release that he fashioned this event after similar shows in Vienna and Spain, and has toured abroad with his equine performance.

This is the first time the show has come to North America, and it has taken three years for Gasser to prepare, according to the release.

Nearly 30 horses have been trained in dressage (a Greek form of horseback riding), though less than half of those perform in any given show. The breeds of horses include Andalusian, Friesian, Lipizzaner and Arabian, and audiences can expect special performances from each breed.

Kissimmee is the first stop on the gala’s North American tour, where the equines will perform at Osceola Heritage park at 7:30 p.m. On Feb. 8, the show will travel to the University of Central Florida’s CFE Arena for performances at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Tickets range from $25 to $45, and children younger than 12 years old and seniors aged 60 and older receive a $5 discount.
