Jonathan Marshall has earned his reputation as one of the worlds leading display falconers over the last 30 years. He has provided shows at some of the largest outdoor events in the UK. He has worked on many film and television projects which have featured his unique work that includes hang gliding with Golden Eagles and skydiving with Peregrine falcons.
Not content with just flying birds of prey, Jonathan introduced dancing Spanish and Lusitano horses into his display and trained both birds and horses to work together. The falcons are trained to chase a swung lure at over 100 mph while the horses perform high schooled dressage moves such as Piaffe, passage and Levade.
The carefully choreographed dance is performed to beautiful music and takes on a balletic flavour. Costume and showmanship make this a display like no other, indeed it is totally unique and is the culmination of a lifetimes passion for horses and falcons.
Each year thousands of people up and down the country are thrilled, exhilarated and regularly moved to tears by what they see at his performances. It is art, beauty, falconry, history, passion, freedom, horsemanship, romance, flight, dance, grace, unique and timeless. All of the above and so much more.
