What You'll Get
Click above to buy $9 children's tickets to Nutcracker on Horseback. Buy here $13 adult tickets to Nutcracker on Horseback.
Let visions of sugarplums prance through your head and gallop into the holiday season with today's Groupon to see the Nutcracker on Horseback at the Noble Horse Theatre. You get adult tickets for $13 (normally $28 evening, $18 matinee), tickets for children 12 and under for $9 (normally $18 evening, $14 matinee), and tickets for horses (free, but not recommended since the horses may become jealous of the dancers). Witness the breathtaking power of horse and rider moving as one in a breathtakingly powerful ballet so engaging that you will lose track of who is a human, who is a horse, and who is a majestic mix of the two. Six, ten, and more sets of legs will gracefully brush the ground, defying gravity, reason, and the 17 laws of physics.
Whether you live for the dance of the sugarplums or you're sick of tutus and tendues, the Nutcracker on Horseback is the perfect holiday outing for friends or families. Set to the festive backdrop of Tchaikovsky's most popular ballet score, a storyteller narrates the familiar tale while human and equine performers delight audiences with their majestic leaps, bounds, and acrobatics. After the show, the horses will line up to meet and silently judge you with their wise, soulful eyes.
Nuzzle up to your sweetie in the cozy, indoor theater with a glass of wine for a night full of hurdle-hopping horsepower. Performances are BYOB, and though your Groupon does not include Noble Horse's dinner, you are welcome to purchase it separately or bring food of your own. Evening performances last 75 minutes and matinee performances last an hour. The Nutcracker on Horseback runs from November 14 to January 9. Check out its schedule of show times and call soon to reserve seats since the show sells out quickly.

What You Did Not Know: Famous Horses
Americans love horses, as evidenced by the numerous horses that have achieved fame and fortune. Here’s what you didn’t know about some of our most beloved horses:
Secretariat: Sure, he won the Triple Crown, but nobody remembers his greatest accomplishment: being a great dad.
Seabiscuit: The Best Horse in America became a symbol of hope during the Great Depression, an innocent time when Americans rallied behind horses, well-baked pies, and anything remotely great that wasn’t a depression.
Mr. Ed: At the height of his popularity, this acting horse received more than 1,000 fan letters a week, and ate every single one.
