Cavalia :: Sweet Treat to the Blind & Visually Impaired Children

RxR Magazine

A group of blind and visually impaired youth had the rare opportunity to experience something incredibly different and moving last Wednesday, August 27– a hands-on sensory tour of the equine spectacular Cavalia: A Magical Encounter Between Human and Horse.

They had a ball of a time - seeing them smile from ear to ear...PRICELESS

Cavalia had worked with the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped to make this experience happen for the children. This special interactive tour allowed them to experience Cavalia through a variety of senses including touch and sound. 

Members of the Cavalia cast guided the children through this one-of-a-kind experience, as they are allowed to touch the horse’s coats, feel their warmth, brush and groom them. They also had the opportunity to feel the tackle, reins and harnesses.

Learning through the sense of touch & feel

During the tour they smelt and touched the horses’ food, visited the farrier’s station where the shoes are custom made and listened to the horses’ heartbeat and breathing with stethoscopes. At the end of the tour, riders brought their horses to a full 45km gallop, allowing the young guests to feel the ground quake beneath the incredible power of these equine stars.

A touching gesture by Cavalia to give back to the society.
