Our Team

The Dancing Horses Theater OPEN YEAR ROUND, presents an enchanting Vegas-style performance unparalleled anywhere else. From the moment the show opens until the finale, the audience of all ages sits spellbound, applauding each equine performer and trainer, exclaiming in wonder, chuckling at the humor, and even wiping the occasional tear when a moment of connection touches a heart string.

Meet Our Staff

We are privileged to have an amazing staff of professional trainers, performers and interns. It takes a team of dedicated and hard working individuals to put on a show of this magnitude. We have educated and entertained our audiences for more than 20 years and hope to continue this legacy.


Cassidy is our amazing Production Manager and also a feature performer. Cassidy has been in the entertainment industry and worked with animals her entire life. She represents four generations of entertainers and equestrians in the United States. He grandfather, John Herriott, was one of the original trainers in the early days of The Dancing Horses Theatre. Cassidy actually performs with some of our semi retired horses that John trained. Cassidy is not only a talented horsewoman, she is also a skilled and beautiful aerialist. Off stage, Cassidy wears many hats including overseeing our Intern program, show production, community relations, and social media.
