Probably the fastest most thrilling display of horsemanship you will ever see. Gerard's fully choreographed chariot races, using 2 and 4 horse teams, have been playing to crowds all over Europe for years.
The Charioteers and horses especially are trained to display a no-holds barred philosophy, hard-bitten performers, guaranteed to satisfy the blood lust of even the most demanding Roman Emperor.
The chariot races are as real as those held in the Coliseum 2000 years ago and just as dangerous, "only the best horsemen take part". It is not uncommon for the chariots to lose wheels and charioteers as they cut each other up on the bends. The horse teams take a lot of controlling as they achieve speeds in excess of 30 m.p.h.
