3-week-old foal rapidly steals the show after hearing cheering while walking next to its mother in the ring

Beautiful creatures are horses.

So majestic that they are the only creatures trusted to carry mighty soldiers and even royalty.

Their appearance is also diverse due to the existence of countless breeds that hail from various nations across the globe.

Among these breeds is the ‘Haflinger’.

According to Wikipedia, “The Haflinger, also known as the Avelignese, is a breed of horse developed in Austria and northern Italy (namely Hafling in South Tyrol region) during the late 19th century. Haflinger horses are relatively small, are always chestnut with flaxen mane and tail, have distinctive gaits described as energetic but smooth, and are well-muscled yet elegant.”

I wholeheartedly concur with the characterization of them as “energetic yet smooth and possessing both well-defined muscles and elegance.”

This mother horse and her foal duo put on a captivating performance for the audience at the Philadelphia Horse World Expo.

They were a stunning display of elegance.

A foal named Blitz, who is only 21 days old, and his mother will be parading their magnificent Haflinger breed in front of a live audience.

With their rider leading the way within the arena, the magnificent mother horse advanced gracefully.

Her appearance was nothing short of magnificent and breathtakingly beautiful.

Her foal was proudly trotting alongside her.

During the procession, Blitz was exhibiting the typical antics of a young horse.

He was bounding around energetically, completely disregarding the proceedings and unaware of the appropriate behavior for such an occasion.

To everyone’s surprise, the audience was enamored by Blitz’s playful antics and showered the young horse with enthusiastic cheers and resounding applause.

That’s when Blitz stole the show.

Despite his youthful age or perhaps due to an adrenaline-fueled burst of energy, Blitz continued to race around, seemingly trying to showcase his innate abilities to the spectators.

The excitement was so intense that Blitz even veered off course and strayed from his mother and rider, jumping away from the designated path.

More entertainment was in store.

He was leaping and prancing like it was his first time experiencing the freedom of an open field and being surrounded by people who were equally thrilled as he was.

At a point in the parade, Blitz came to a halt in the center and gazed at the captivated audience.

It’s as if he was saying, “Is this the real world? What are these creatures called? Are they cheering for me?”

It is uncertain if the audience had previously witnessed such an unscripted moment during a Horse World Expo, but what is certain is that they thoroughly enjoyed every moment of Blitz’s performance.

A little boy indeed.

Blitz is similar to a young human boy in that they are both full of playfulness and energy.

The audience obviously loved him.

Even after breaking from his performance during the show.

The rider deserves praise for not pursuing him, as a strict rule of the Parade of Breeds is that riders are prohibited from manhandling any of the horses.

The rider likely understood that Blitz was simply releasing pent-up energy, which was why he was jumping around so much.

Regardless, both the live audience and the 7.1 million viewers who watched the video online were highly entertained.
