CAVALIA-The stars of the show are the horses, about half stallions and half geldings. (There are no mares). These horses eat 40 bales of hay per day; they consume 900 kg (1980 lb) of grain and 20 kg (44 lb) of carrots each week. Many of the horses have their manes braided when not performing, and Templado's knee-length mane takes 90 minutes to complete. The horses are maintained by a team of 20 people, including a stables manager, two veterinary technicians, a farrier, and several groomers.
