Horse musical

Horse musical

Horse musicals are musicals in which horses are the stars.

How it all started

In 1995 at the horse trade show "Pferd Zurich" ("Zurich Horse")the name "horse musical" - "Pferdemusical" in German - was created by the organizers, among them Dieter Speidel from Switzerland.

Le Prince

In the following years Dieter Stephan Speidel has produced other horse musicals, such as "Le Prince", a play that tells the story of the legend of Louis Henri de Bourbon, the 7th Prince de Condé (Chantilly 1692 - 1740) who believed he would be reincarnated as a horse. He therefore told architecte Jean Marc Aubert to build the "Grandes Écuries" in Chantilly near Paris. This was a huge castle-like stables which had room for more than 300 horses. The Prince was able to see the stables when he had breakfast on the balcony of his water castle in Chantilly.

The horsemusical "Le Prince" (music composed by Mike Turtle, London & Basel) first played in 2001 at the world's largest horse fair, "Equitana" in Essen, Germany and then played almost 100 times in Germany, Switzerland and France.

Other Activities

Since then Dieter Speidel produced other horsemusicals such as "The Horse Prince Dinner Theater" of which a trailer is nominated to the 2006 Epona film festival in Cabourg, France a festival organized by Cheval Français -

Speidel has since created other horsemusicals, like "The Gauchos" and "Violino & Purosangue". Production companies for horsemusicals like Horse & Luxury, Kenilworth, U.K.produce horsemusicals in Avenches ( at the "Institut Équestre National Avenches - . These production companies also produced: "Le Pardon", "La Légende de la Licorne", "Cheval Fiesta" and in Berne at BEA, the reprise of "Le Prince" in April 2007. The copyrights of "Le Prince" belong to GOLDMAN SINCLAIR Ltd. Birmingham, U.K. an international company active in real estate, money market and project promotion.
