With only three days to go before the big show under the big top, the horses of Cavalia Odysseo have taken up residence in their new Winnipeg home.

The 70 horses are part of 13 breeds performing in the upcoming show at Sterling Lyon Parkway and Kenaston Boulevard, which pairs together acrobatics and aerial stunts beginning May 12.

The horses will now start rehearsals after spending the past week resting at a ranch near Oakbank, Manitoba.

The $30 million theatrical production will run the horses for about 12 minutes for each performance once the show debuts.

Ticket prices range from $29.50 to $149.50 and are available through Ticketmaster. Matinee and evening performances are scheduled through Sunday, June 10.
