The Tallest Horse On Earth

Set in a patchwork world of wool, bubbles and gnomies, this is the story of Tim, a little boy who happens to be the proud owner of the tallest horse on earth… Or so he thinks! When Tim embarks on an adventure, he has only one trusty companion in mind. Together, the duo will explore the countryside, meeting lost children and magical creatures along their way and resulting in an epic crusade of the smallest proportions. Will Tim learn to love the wild? What’s the real deal with this giant horse? And most importantly, will they make it home in time for tea?

A warm-hearted puppet show told with live music, shadow puppetry and a large dollop of giant smashing. For children and their families.  

The Tallest Horse On Earth was Silly Boys first production and enjoyed a successful national tour in 2013.
