Born in the Swiss town of Schaffhausen, near the banks of the River Rhein, it could be said that Rene Gasser was destined to work and perform with horses. His love all things equine began at an early age and stemmed from a family history of not only horsemanship but also showmanship. Rene’s great grandmother was an accomplished horse trainer and performer, whilst his great grandfather was a highly decorated military horseman.
Rene’s involvement in the equestrian entertainment business throughout the world has allowed him to take his family heritage to new heights. Having worked alongside some of Europe’s best riders and trainers he has the experience, skill and ability to make his dreams reality. Audiences will be in awe of the professionalism and love that Rene displays throughout his performances.
For the last ten years Rene had been touring both in Australia and abroad with his various productions, which include Gala of the Royal Horses, Lipizzaner’s With the Stars and Equestra. Rene is excited to bring an all-new revamped production of Gala of The Royal Horses to new audiences in North America.
Rene and the team from El Caballo Blanco have spent the last 3 years planning for this moment. Not only did they purchase and train more young Spanish Horses to add to their stable of 25, they also imported traditional costumes and equipment from Spain.
