My Friend Mary and I went along to Belmont Racecourse. It was stunning.
It's a highly visual show and behind the curtain, a fairy tale kingdom was revealed, featuring an evaporating stream, falling rain, snow and autumn leaves and a constantly changing background projected onto a 60 metre-wide screen.The horses freely roll around on the wide stage lapping up the audience's applause. Some of the horses seem almost shy, tilting their humble heads to catch a sneaky side glance, others make it known who is boss, nibbling and nudging other members of the herd to encourage them to fall in line behind them. A live band performed on a four-metre-high platform behind the huge screen.
