Description of Individual show acts 

Saloon Scene
This is our opening number, and sets the tone for the wild west excitement the rest of the show brings! In the old west, the town saloon was always the hot spot for anyone wanting to have a good time and blow off some steam. There was music, dancing, drinks, cowboys and pretty girls, and when you put all these together, there's bound to be some hair-raising, fist-flying excitement!
Cloud Swing
The ultimate display of death defying beauty! The lovely Aurelia Wallenda Zoppe, performs breathtaking maneuvers while swinging on a rope 30 feet above the ground! No safety harness.........no nets..........just a young lady who comes from 7 generations of legendary circus performers! 

Square Dance
One of the most popular western dances, and always a favorite when cowboys and cowgirls get together after a hard week on the trail. Have you ever seen horses allemande and do-si-do? We add our own special "Frontier twist" and do our square dance on horseback! 

Roman Riding
An amazing demonstration of balance and control, while standing on top of a team of horses. Our Roman Rider can usually be seen at his own show in Las Vegas called, "Gladius, the show." You can see him perform in "Frontier," as he rides atop a team of 6 giant draft horses, August 2nd through 24th at the Michiana Event Center. 

Trick Riding
High speed, high energy acrobatics performed on horseback at a full gallop! Always a crowd favorite, our highly skilled trick riders will have you holding your breath on the edge of your seat, wondering, "how crazy do you have to be to try something like that?!" 

Garrocha
A garrocha pole is a 12 to 14 foot pole, originally used by Spanish vaqueros (cowboys) to move cattle around, rather than using ropes. This is actually where the term "cow poke" came from.
Today, Garrocha has become a demonstration of skill, much like reining, or dressage, with an accomplished rider, an extremely well trained horse, and graceful dancers all working together to create a living, majestic piece of art! 


Go Gaucho
Sebastian and Amberlyn Sayago, our husband and wife gaucho folk dancers are some of the best in the world! While Amberlyn is originally from Boston, Sebastian hails from Argentina, and won the title of national champion of Malambo in 2013!
Their amazing skills with the boleadoras.....on the drums......and dancing took a lifetime to perfect, and when you see them, you'll understand why they are always a crowd favorite!

Trick Roping/Whips
Who would have ever thought one of the best trick roping cowboys in the world would be from The Bronx, NY?!
AJ Silver is quite possibly the most polished trick roper and whip artist in the world, and his skills have literally taken him all over the world!
AJ is a master of ropes, whips, boleadoras and much more! We are thrilled that he is a featured performer in Frontier! 

Liberty Act
The Liberty act is perhaps the ultimate testament to the true nature of horses, and the incredible bond they have with their human companions! A bond that reaches far beyond any physical bonds typically used to control a horse, such as a bridle, halter, ropes or reins. These horses are free to run about and do whatever they choose, yet the nature of a horse that is so willing to please the human they love, keeps them attentive and obedient to everything asked of them. This act will stir your emotions like none other! 

Cowboy Mounted Shooting
In the old west, a cowboy's survival depended on how skilled they were with a gun. Whether it was hunting for food, or fending off cattle rustlers. If a cowboy wasn't handy with a firearm, he went hungry......or worse!
Quite often, any shooting that had to be done, was done on horseback, while, either chasing a possible meal, or being chased by someone, who, you hoped was not a very good shot! "Frontier," features a dazzling exhibition of marksmanship from Ezra Yoder, one of today's top cowboy mounted shooters! 

Ranch Scene
Many of today's rodeo events started on ranches as cowboys were always trying to outdo one another. Well, this scene features riding, roping, herding cattle and lots of celebrating, but things take an unexpected turn as the battle for bragging rights becomes a competition between the men and the women! You'll have to come see for yourself who ends up on top once the dust has settled! 

Single Point Aerial Harness
Ever wanted to "fly through the air with the greatest of ease?" Our single point aerial routine is a moment of sheer beauty and grace! Chelsi Warren dances on the ground with the beauty of an Angel, and soars through the air with the elegance of an eagle! You will be enthralled by this story told through dance and flight! 

Comedy
Our comedy will have the whole family laughing out loud as Mark Lyon hilariously tries to prove to his wife, Miranda that his trained cow can perform any trick or maneuver that her beautiful, well trained horse can do. 

Patriotic Finale
The conclusion of the show will leave a lasting impression in your hearts and tear of pride in your eye for our great country!
We bring out the entire cast of horses, cowboys and cowgirls one last time to honor those brave men and women that make us the greatest nation on earth!
