Rare and exquisite miniature horses out on parade from 31 January – 2 February

Singapore, 29 January 2014Singapore Zoo’s eight falabellas are gearing up for the Year of the Horse and are all set to welcome visitors to the park. As part of the horse-picious Chinese New Year celebrations, visitors to the park can marvel at the entourage of eight miniature horses who will trot proudly alongside their keepers during the Falabellas Parade.

The parade will be held between 31 January and 2 February, and begins at Rainforest Kidzworld at 10.30am. Visitors are welcome to walk alongside the falabellas as they make their way to the festive flower-laden Garden With a View.

The falabella is a rare Argentine breed of miniature horse, known as the first and original miniature horse breed. It is a true purebred due to its unique and historic ancestry, which is one of its greatest attributes. Falabellas are viewed as prestigious to have and are highly prized by those who do own them.
