    Call me stupid, but......

    .....are Lipizanners EXCLUSIVELY used by the Haute Ecole, or are they just few and far between? Is there a rule that Lipizanners are not allowed outside the Haute Ecole? Always wanted to know this, my sister went to see them ages ago!

    Come to Hungary ! There are thousands of them . They are used for everything from the national carriage driving champions to my local farmer who has one for pulling his bales around with !
    Over here they are just another local breed , beautiful but not rare at all.

    I don't think they are exclusive to dressage; they just aren't a 'dime a dozen' like QH, TB, or Arabs... ;)

    The Lazar brothers use lipici as carriage horses at international competitions.

    I bought one from a local dealer for about 250$ because it was ill and he couldn't afford the vet bill . All the horse needed was to have an injection every day for a week and he couldn't do it himself.

    I don't think so, but I still reckon it would be difficult to get a Lipizanner in Australia. If you wanted one you'd probably have to import it. Having said that, there are probably some out there somewhere...=P

    I would say again - the home country of the Lipizzaner is hungary. Here is a pic of the one I got as mentioned above . His name was Felix and he was a purebred Favor line Lipizzaner.

    They are like the PREs and Lusitanos - a rare breed outside their home country.

    All 3 breeds share much, and are all suited for Haute Ecole. They are represented in their National displays:

    Spanish Riding School, Vienna - Lippizaners.
    There is also a branch in Johannesburg, South Africa.

    Royal School of Equestrian Art, Jerez, Spain - Pura Raza Espaņola/ Pure Spanish Horses

    Portuguese Alta Escuela, Lisbon - Lusitanos

    Nutty Saddler: Felix is absolutely GORGEOUS! How is he - temperament wise? He's still young, right? Still got a little grey in him? Again, beatiful horse...I want him!
    Lol, I'll probably never even SEE a Lipizanner, let alone OWN one!

    No breed has ever come to be 100% one discipline. Lipizzaners were bred for Haute Ecole specifically just like the thoroughbred was bred to run or the Clyde was bred to be a plow horse.
    I am very bias to the European breeds. I think they tend to be the most beautifully bred *grin*

    Are you looking into getting one? Or were you simply inquiring about them?

    The history of the Lipizzaner is well documented - they were brought to central europe in the 1500's from iberia . Their original use was that of riding and light carriage work . They are used by the Haute - ecole because they are very good at the movements required , but they were not bred for this purpose originally .
