Blind & Visually Impaired Children Experience Blind Touch Tour at Cavalia.

Seven children from the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped were given an opportunity to experience a hands-on sensory tour with the equine spectacular Cavalia on the 27 August, Wednesday at Cavalia Village on Bayfront Avenue, next to Marina Bay Sands.

Through this one-of-a-kind experience, the visitors were allowed to touch the horse's coats, feel their warmth, brush and groom them.  They also felt the tackle, rein and harnesses. They smelt and touched the horses's food, visited the farrier's station where the shoes are custom made and listened to the horses' heartbeat and breathing with stethoscope. Even though they are Visually Handicapped, they are very passionate to know more about these horses. Their passion for knowledge had melted my heart.

At the end of the tour, height riders brought their horses to a full 45km gallop, allowing the visitors to feel ground quake beneath the incredible power of these equine stars. The performer was very meticulous, she described the details of the riders, the horses, and their expressions to visitors.

A special gift was also being offered to the kids at the end of this unique tour.

This show will run till September 14.
