War Horse Joey meets The Household Cavalry's musical ride horse ElizabethAhead of their performances at Olympia, The London International Horse Show, puppet horse Joey was introduced to troopers and horses including Elizabeth, one of the Household Cavalry’s musical ride horses (see picture) and Spartacus, the Cavalry’s long-distinguished drum horse who is retiring at Olympia after 20 years of service.
 
Hailed by the Sunday Times as “the theatrical event of the decade”, War Horse is a spectacular production based on the celebrated novel by Michael Morpurgo.
 
Set in the First World War, this tale of bravery, loyalty, and the bond between a young recruit and his horse sees actors working with astonishing life-sized puppets, created by the internationally renowned Handspring Puppet Company.

  • Joey from War Horse and The Musical Ride of The Household Cavalry can both be seen performing at Olympia, The London International Horse Show, from December 14-20.
