Thank you to French site Hyppoblog for passing on news that the Musée Vivant du Cheval in Chantilly is launching a new show to honour the equestriennes of the nineteenth century circus. These ladies performed haut école movements and bold tricks like leaping over dining tables and through hoops – all while side-saddle. They were a social sensation, respected and adored by the public. Called “Ecuyères” after the French term for these horsewomen, the spectacular will be performed from April to November. Must. Go. To Paris.
