Mark Remley was a successful San Diego businessman with a beautiful wife, nice cars, and a passion for horses. This last quality was perhaps influenced by his wife, Tatyana Remley, who had been riding horses from a very young age. Her training and experience in several different styles of riding gave her a technical appreciation and introduced Mark Remley to the world of professional horsemanship.
From watching the way the animals moved through their routines and performed feats of dexterity and precision, Mark Remley’s admiration for horses deepened. He found their power and coordination awe-inspiring, and wanted to share what he saw as pure artistry with audiences everywhere. His passion for horsemanship was so great that eventually Mark Remley and Tatyana decided to produce a horse show.
Their production, called Valitar, featured more than 55 horses of distinct breeding in addition to 25 performers. The performers were hugely talented acrobats and riders who carried out impressive and dangerous aerobatic stunts that were combined with the stunts and routines of the horses below. Altogether, the show was a visual spectacle that combined the talents of some of the best horses, trainers, and performers in the world.
To make his dream become the impressive reality that it was, Mark Remley travelled around the world, using his business experience to talk with and learn from some of the most experienced and knowledgeable horsemen. He was able to find some of the best acrobats, riders, horses, and trainers from countries all over the globe and bring them all back to the San Diego area. Combining his work and passion, Mark Remley was able to make his dream come true.
