Night of the Horse has waited in line for four years to bring this spectacular horseman from the land down under to Del Mar and you’ll see why.

He’s the only cowboy in the country who Roman Rides a liberty team comprised of four horses and a pony!  Dan has wowed audiences throughout North America, Australia, and Japan as he pushes the limits of horsemanship and entertainment with his exhilarating liberty and Roman Riding performances.

Dan won “Way of the Horse” at the prestigious Equitana Asia Pacific and the coveted “Road to the Horse International Colt Starting World Championship.”

Erik Martonovich and his extraordinary Big Horse Productions team are coming to the 2018 Night of the Horse!

Erik, a well-known competitive vaulter who represented the United States at World Equestrian Games in 1998 and 2002, and his team were seen by Normand Latourelle a founder of Cirque du Soleil.  They were immediately signed to perform in a new show Latourelle was launching named Cavalia.

California Cowgirls

The dream of amazing a crowd with fast and fancy horses, breathtaking maneuvers, and glamorous outfits began in 1994 with the introduction of the California Cowgirls Equestrian Drill team.

The California Cowgirls appear at rodeos, horse shows, parades, and special events throughout California and Nevada. While wearing eye-catching costumes, carrying rippling American flags, and riding beautiful horses in complex drill routines at top speed around the arena these Cowgirls receive standing ovations at every performance.  The California Cowgirls hail from Wilton, CA and consider their role as a California Cowgirl a combination of play and hard work made easier with the love of western traditions, people, and horses.

Bobby Kerr

A huge Del Mar favorite returns by popular demand!  Bobby, his fearless American Mustangs, and dogs, will make you laugh until the tears run down your cheeks.  And the horse-lover in you will thrill at what this cowboy has done with Mustangs adopted from the wild.

And let us not overlook Bobby the poet, who writes and delivers a poem for each of the Mustangs he rides.  It will take seconds for you to understand why Bobby is back in Del Mar!

Prepare to fall in love with Bobby, his dogs and horses, just like everyone else!
