Lipizzaner Stallions

The “World Famous” Lipizzaner Stallions will be performing at the Rose Garden June 11th. The event includes many of the traditional movements and exercises presented at the world-renowned Spanish Riding School of Vienna. While maintaining a classical presentation of the Lipizzaner, also featured is the forefather of the Lipizzaner – the Spanish Andalusian.
 
The graceful dance of the Lipizzaner Stallions is a breathtaking ballet over 400 years in the making.  A highlight of the performance is their spectacular leaps and maneuvers known as the “Airs Above the Ground” which were born in the fury of the battlefield. Now these stunning maneuvers are preserved as an equestrian work of art that you can witness from the safety of your seat!

The Lipizzan is a rare and unique breed; its history and culture is known worldwide.   The Walt Disney movie The Miracle of the White Stallions, depicting General George S. Patton saving them at the end of World War II from certain extinction, created an even greater worldwide interest in the Lipizzaner breed.  Had it not been for Patton, there would be no Lipizzans today.
