Cavallo Equestrain - equestrain arts
Cavallo Equestrian Arts is directed by Olissio Zamperla Zoppe and his brothers, Gino and Ermes. This group is among the last artists still performing in all equestrian specialty disciplines such as bareback riding, Cossack riding, and liberty. After eight generations from their mother's side (Zamperla), and seven generations from their father's side (Zoppe), there is no question in their minds what they were born to do. Their training began at age three and they have been featured in the biggest equestrian shows in North America, including Cheval Theatre, Arabian Nights, and Dixie Stampede. Their own creation, Ma'Ceo, is a gypsy themed equestrian performance that has the highest level of skill seen today.
