Glass slippers will be exchanged for horse-shoes tonight as Waikato dressage riders saddle up for a performance of Cinderella at this year's Equidays.
As part of a four-part show, the horses and their riders will be providing a first class performance to massive crowds of horse enthusiasts.
The three day Equidays event kicked off to a great start yesterday with over 400 horses on-site at Mystery Creek Events Centre over the weekend as the show boasts everything from showjumping to horse derby.
Mystery Creek communications executive Vicki Annison said 200 campers would be hosted on site, while 30 stables had been set up for their equine guests.
The highlights of the first day involved a saddle fitting seminar, some jumping displays along with a spot of Hoofball - soccer for horses.
The night was closed with a Showjumping Spectacular Show which featured top rider Vicky Wilson.
Today, showgoers will be treated to demonstrations in dressage, bareback riding, jumping and the fun-filled day will be finished with the night show - The Dressage Extravanganza.
