Tad Griffith of Agua Dulce California, is considered by former champions to be the greatest gymnast on horseback in the past three decades. At age five, he made his professional debut into the arena of performing at Pretty Prairie Kansas Rodeo -- trick riding on his Shetland pony.

Today, Tad's shows encompass over two hours of horse oriented family entertainment. Many of North America's largest statefairs, horseshows, horsefairs, rodeos, and race tracks have contracted his traditional acts including: Trick and Fancy Riding; Roman Riding; Dancing Horses; "Alpo -, The Ball Kicking Horse", and opening ceremony productions. In 1986, Tad formed his production company and wrote, produced, directed, and performed his first major western theatrical production, "The Texas Sesquicentennial Celebration" at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. This production was soon followed by a live concert production for the Charlie Daniels' Band. For this Tad coordinated and directed an arena show to accompany the stage concert as a two hour live music video.

Tad has also had a career in Dinner Theater Production Shows, performing for a year when he was ten with his family in Mexico City at the unique equestrian Mission del Campanario, two years performing in The Kingdom of Dancing Stallions in Buena Park, CA., and most recently, completing over seven thousand performances in eight years at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino's "King Arthur's Tournament Dinner Show".
