Nice work if you can get it (for a horse).

Odysseo is a unique form of circus with performers ranging from its stars - the horses - to acrobats, musicians and dancers.

The show has been touring with its 67 horses since it started in Laval, under the Big Top, two years ago.

Angela Turner is one of the trainer-performers with Odysseo. She performs everything from classical dessage to trick riding that will have you holding your breath.

Angela speaks with Sonali Karnick about the amazing experience of working with the horses.
