SINGAPORE - Seven children from the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped were treated to a hands-on, behind-the-scenes tour of Cavalia: A Magical Encounter Between Man And Horse on Wednesday.

For one hour, the children and their minders were guided around the stables by members of the cast of Cavalia, a big-top show that features aerial ballet dancers, acrobats, riders and horses.

The visitors touched and groomed the horses, felt their heartbeats through stethoscopes, and listened to them galloping at 45kmh. At the tour's end, each child was given four tickets for Cavalia's weekend performance. The show runs till Sept 14.

This tour for the visually-impaired is Cavalia's 10th, and its first in Asia. It has organised similar tours in Australia, Canada, the United States and the United Arab Emirates.
