W. Springfield, MA (November 7, 2011) – The 2011 Massachusetts Equine Affaire is right around the corner and if you love the Lusitano breed you are in for a treat during the premier equestrian gathering, November 10-13 at the Eastern States Exposition. Interagro Luistanos, the world’s largest breeder and exporter of Lusitano horses, will have a booth at the event to showcase their magnificent Lusitanos and international rider and trainer Cherri Reiber will also present an exciting tandem demonstration with two Interagro Lusitanos.
Reiber’s tandem driving is a crowd pleaser and will take place Thursday, Friday and Saturday night during the Pfizer Fantasia, Equine Affaire’s signature musical celebration of the horse. Reiber rides one horse and drives another in front, showing off upper level movements including the piaffe, passage, tempi changes and the spectacular Spanish walk. This eagerly anticipated equine musical revue features a star-studded lineup of professional equestrian performers and exceptional horses choreographed to musical styles ranging from traditional and country to classical and contemporary and Reiber will have the unique opportunity to promote the much-loved Interagro Lusitano in front of thousands of horse enthusiasts. If you are there, you don’t want to miss the Lusitanos and their tandem demonstration!
Make sure you also stop by the Interagro Lusitano booth where the farm’s history, mission, and horses are on display.
