Appaloosa is Finalist in Cavalia Star Contest

MOSCOW, Idaho—An Appaloosa colt is competing for his chance at stardom in the world renowned Cavalia, a “spectacular equestrian odyssey” often described as an equine ballet. Frosted With Class is one among the nine finalists looking to be one of the two colts bestowed the honor of opening each Cavalia performance during its two-week run in Scottsdale, Arizona, beginning Feb. 14.

Cavalia hosted a contest recruiting colts, ages 6 to 18 months old, in the Arizona valley area. The nine finalists were announced in early January, and the winners will be announced any day. This is the first time since its inception five years ago that Cavalia will feature local colts in the performance.

Laurie Hawkins of Globe, Arizona, is the proud owner of Frosted With Class (A Plaudit For Frosty x Classical Impression). She is anxiously waiting to find out the names of the selected colts, and is hoping Frosted With Class is among the chosen.

If selected, Frosted With Class and another colt will open the performance of 75 human and equine artists by entering the stage with the freedom to “express themselves, discover their unique surroundings and play with toys—as every one-year old should,” according to the official Cavalia Web site. Cavalia artists will then make their entrance as the colts greet them.

Not only will the chosen colts make their show business debut, they will enjoy the celebrity life in the Cavalia stables with the show’s stars during the two-week engagement.

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938 with a mission of preserving, promoting and enhancing the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC has since registered more than 670,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline including racing, endurance riding and serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho, the heart of the Palouse region—the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
