Lisa Dufresne

Horses Horses Horses!

Lisa has turned her love of animals into a lifelong career. From her youngest days growing up in Worcester, Massachusetts, her natural skill with horses led her to a career performing, choreographing and competing with horses.

With over thirty years experience training animal acts of all kinds, Lisa’s performances with her animals have delighted audiences across the world. Her first love and specialty, Lisa’s horses have waltzed their way into Japan, danced in the Main Ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria in New York City, appeared on stage at Lincoln Center during the Lincoln Center Theatre Festival, and circled the United States for various circuses, stage shows, fairs and horse theaters, including a number of years performing with Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey.

Lisa has been featured in a number of television programs, magazines and newspapers, covering her work with horses, zebras, camels, llamas, pigs and sea lions and is an active clinician, appearing at Equitana USA, and Equine Affaires, demonstrating her training techniques.

Lisa is a Gold and Silver Medalist in the United States Dressage Federation and has won numerous National and Regional awards competing in dressage.

Lisa is the owner/operator of the performing horse show called Horses Horses Horses!!. This show has been awarded the Circle of Excellence Award by the Outdoor Amusement Business Association. The show travels seven months of the year, performing at fairs all over the eastern region of the US. This show is a performing horse show to delight those of all ages.

The show consists of 12 miniature stallions, a beautiful Freisian from Holland and a black Arabian. The horses waltz, bow and rear, lay down sit up and walk on their hind legs, perform at liberty and under saddle. A show to be seen and enjoyed by all.
