Roy Horn's 67th Birthday at Mirage

Here’s the first photo of Magicians of the Impossible Siegfried & Roy riding their new horses, which have become an integral part of Roy Horn’s physical rehabilitation program -- and Roy is certainly proving that he is the master of the impossible!

As Vegas DeLuxe reported exclusively, Roy purchased the horses El Commodore and Mi Corazon as a Christmas gift for the two illusionists. Roy made a promise that he would reach one hour of riding to assist his recovery program.

The two have been riding the horses almost daily on their 184-acre estate. Roy is seen here in this photograph he chose for Vegas DeLuxe readers on his horse Mi Corazon. In the shot is their summit pavilion, better known as Camp David, and their own chapel.

Siegfried told me: “Roy is loving the workouts. The horses are magnificent and have been warmly accepted into the family of animals we have here. It’s obvious to see the mutual love between them and Roy. This was a wonderful Christmas gesture, and Roy loves the riding -- so much so that it’s sometimes difficult to get him off his horse!

“It has definitely been a big boost to him and assists greatly with his own workouts.”
