Arabian Nights is a show that brings a fairy tale to life on horseback. Beautiful horses from around the world are showcased in the world’s largest indoor equestrian arena for a permanent show. The magic display of breathtaking horses and colorful costumes combine to create a celebration of horses and riders. Arabian Nights has created its own niche, a unique venue that is incomparable to any attraction in the Orlando area.
The Arabian is the oldest of all domesticated breeds of horses and forefather of all riding breeds. Their beauty, athletic ability, stamina and strength make them ideal for most jobs in the Arabian Nights show.
