Cavalia by Odysseo - Sandy, Utah

We got a special invite to view the Cavalia show by Odysseo in Sandy, Utah. If you are local, you have probably seen the big white top tent in the parking lot of the Southtowne Mall. It is a pretty impressive set up, and is hard to miss while driving by.
I invited Ms Savannah as my date, and it ended up being a really good decision. We got VIP tickets, and when they say VIP they really do give you a experience like no other...and she felt so special all night. 
We arrived at the VIP tent 90 minutes before the show, and enjoyed a delicious dinner and found some friends. The dinner had a little bit of everything, and I am pretty sure my adventurous 11 year old tried it all...including that really spicy gazpacho. Everything I tried, I loved. Steak, chicken, quiche, pasta salad, shrimp...something for everyone. Not gonna lie, I lived it up with a few too many Coke's.
After a few pictures, a little purchase at the gift shop inside the VIP tent, we picked up our drinks and popcorn {included in ticket as well} to head in to the show. We had amazing seats, 4th row. Savannah had never experienced a big production of any kind, and was absolutely giddy. It was a beautiful set, and you really can't tell you are in a tent.
It was live music, which I wasn't expecting. Gorgeous horses, of course. Sometimes slow and mesmerizing, sometimes you didn't know where to look because so many cool things happening at once. I personally loved all the flips and tricks the most, but when I asked Savannah she couldn't narrow it down.
I was glad I had a few friends go before I did, because I was thinking of taking the whole family. Although it could be entertaining for the younger crowd, I personally wouldn't take my 6 or 4 year old. Of course there is always exceptions, maybe if they are major horse lovers it would be entertaining enough for them to sit through. 
After an hour or so, they have a 30 minute intermission. We went back to the VIP tent to eat dessert. If you aren't fast the lines are crazy long, and you won't have a chance to even make it to the dessert tables. So, that may be a suggestion to remember if you are spending the extra money on your tickets.

Cavalia was nice enough after the show to let us have a meet and greet of some of the talent. Savannah was amazed to meet these ladies up close and personal. We also got to go to the stables to see the horses too. 

It was definitely a night to remember. They are only in Utah until June 3rd, so if you are wanting to only have a limited amount of time left to jump at the chance.
