A group of five kids, ranging in age from 6 to 16, are the Wild West Express. They’re gymnasts on horseback who are fearless. It’s difficult to pick a favorite kid or trick. They’re all terrific. The 16-year-old boy flips up and around the horse while it’s speeding around the track and the 6-year-old swings on the side of a horse by one leg while blowing kisses to the crowd.
The Wild West Express consists of Gattlin Griffith, Callder Griffith, Arrden Griffith, Garrison Griffith, and the only girl — also the only one who’s not a Griffith — Demi Trepanier. The team is trained by Tad Griffith, father of the four Griffith kids. He’s a professional stuntman who’s been in movies including Iron Man, Spider-Man 3, The Last Samurai, among others. He’s currently working on Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Tad Griffith was taught by his parents how to ride and perform tricks while riding. America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
