Lions and Tigers and Horses??? Come watch an exciting equestrian performance to the Greatest Showman movie music featuring Klaas, the Friesian Stallion, with Addisen Hansell as your ringmaster. Klaas, Addie and friends will be performing tricks, liberty and choregraphed movement to some of the Greatest Showman songs.
Klaas is a nine-year-old Friesian stallion by Mintse 384. Addie is fourteen years old and is showing great talent with horses. Together they are trained in liberty, trick training, and dressage. They first started their performing career at MSU Horse Expo in 2019 when Michael Gascon invited them to perform on his Don’t Give Up Tour evening performance. Addie also got to perform in Chicago this winter in Melissa Ashcraft’s Greatest Showman performance where she had two solo acts.
Both Addie and Klaas have been coming to the Minnesota Horse Expo since they could walk. Whether they were performing together or separate, their bond for each other has blossomed since she and Klaas first rode in the Coliseum. They have become extremely close partners in crime who would do anything for each other. This year they have already qualified for regional dressage championships.
