‘Christmas at the Grounds’ was held Saturday and Sunday at The Grounds. For the fourth consecutive year, the Gulf Coast’s elite equestrian trick riding team performed a Christmas celebration in Mobile.
Together with Equestrian Chaos, an equestrian performing stunt troupe, Celisse’s School of the Equestrian Arts is hosting its annual holiday fundraiser Christmas show.
Guests saw a heartfelt, unforgettable presentation of horses, stunt riders, trainers and riders from all walks of life. Officials said it was a fun, uplifting holiday presentation celebrating man’s partnership with horses. Riders dazzled and delighted guests as they performed tricks on horseback – all with a holiday twist.
This year, Celisse’s School of the Equestrian Arts welcomed New York Times best-selling author and founder of The Horse Boy Foundation Rupert Isaacson. Isaacson is a former professional horse trainer, father of a son diagnosed with autism, and a pioneer of the Horse Boy Method. Isaacson’s book, The Horse Boy, was turned into a Sundance film winner. Isaacson signed books at the show.
