“Horse Ballets” were a favorite entertainment of the 1660s and 70s.

The “horse ballet” was a great pastime at the court of Louis XIV. All the nobles participated. Allegorical themes were most often used. The king always appeared dressed as the sun, furthering his image as the center of the French universe.
