The Dodo Rider

Presented by Dizzy O'Dare

Be dazzled by this dainty rider as she shows off her physical strength by bounding along on the back of a galloping Dodo, sometimes while blindfolded, and always full of nerve!

Enter the madcap world of Dizzy O’Dare where nothing is quite as it seems. Legendary equestrian rider Lillian May Stanhope, fresh from a Royal Command performance at Sandringham for Queen Victoria herself, wows you with her rare appearance of Raphus Cucullatous, the last known living specimen of the Dodo bird.
