Jonathan Marshall  has earned his reputation as the world’s  leading display falconer over the last 35 years. As well as providing shows at some of the largest outdoor events in the world he has performed at private functions for royalty in the UK and around the globe.

His work also includes training horses and birds of prey for film and television projects, many of which have featured his unique abilities including hang gliding with Golden Eagles and skydiving with Peregrine falcons.

His fairytale dancing Spanish and Lusitano horses make his live performances like no other, with falcons that are trained to chase a swung lure at over 100 mph while he performs high schooled dressage moves such as Piaffe, passage and Levade. Incredibly, the falcons fly through the horses legs in time to beautiful music.

It is a totally unique and breathtaking performance which encapsulates 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.
