Santi Serra and his magnificent horses to perform at the Longines Hong Kong Masters
Wednesday 14th January 2015
Spanish horseman Santi Serra is set to wow visitors at this year’s Longines Hong Kong Masters with his Sercam Shows. Sercam shows involve “natural dressage” and highlight the beauty of a horse’s movement and the harmony and balance between man and animal.
Santi Serra, the founder of this unique show, is looking forward to brining it to Hong Kong for the first time.
"I’ve never travelled to Hong Kong before. I think the audience will be very enthusiastic and grateful. I hope they will enjoy my show because it is different from all other shows,” he said.
Sercam Shows capture the movement of horses in the wild and demonstrate their obedience without using force. "Sercam Shows was born from a dream. One day I dreamed I could do shows with wild horses.”
“I participated in a rodeo, my horse started running uncontrolled and when he suddenly stopped the audience began to scream and go crazy. It was then that I realized a new concept of a show like this had to be done and here was born Sercam Shows."
Santi Serra has performed throughout Europe including at the last edition of the Gucci Paris Masters and other locations in France (Grand Prix Classic in Fontainebleau, Béziers, Saint Gely du Fes), Italy (Fieracavalli in Verona), Germany (Equitana in Essen) and Spain (CSIO Barcelona, Madrid Horse Week).
"I’m very excited to participate to the Longines Hong Kong Masters, it’s my first time there and outside of Europe."
Sercam Shows feature various breeds of horses including Arabs, Frisons, Lucitans and typical Spanish horses (we call them PRE).
"My best horse is ‘Nika', a dark Arabian mare. She is very beautiful and works very well in the show.”
Santi Serra is a passionate horseman and is extremely dedicated to his horses.
"Horses are my life, I love them. I usually train ten hours each day, but when I have free time I like to do promenades with my horses on the beach or sleep with them in their stables."
