Beautour and the Togni tigers.









This looks like a very nice act. A courbette, backward hind leg walk, reverse jump over over three tigers,... Very nice. Hope to see this act in a few weeks in Lille at Arlette Gruss

Beautour Alfred


Alfred Beautour was for a long time a presenter and trainer for the Medrano circus owned by the Casartelli family. He presented the tigers of the circus at Circo Medrano Casartelli but also at Circus Nock and Louis Knie. He was also at the Monte Carlo Circus Festival with them and at the Weihnachtscircus in Stuttgart organized by the Knie family. The act originally contained 12 tigers and had a hind leg walk, three reverse jump overs at the same time, roll over, caroussel, sit up, fire hoop,... and Alfred is a real good presenter. He presented the tigers from I think 1990 until 2006. In 2008 he trained exotics for Circus Knie and in 2009 he went to the Togni stables to train tigers there for Flavio Togni. This winter he was with four tigers at Circo Americano Togni and he will be at Cirque Arlette Gruss with 6 tigers this season. The act containes a roll over, sit ups, backward hind leg walk, courbette over a laying down tiger, reverse jump over, mirror ball,... Alfred also has presented horses and exotics.
