World Famous Lipizzaner Stallions *Pic Heavy*

Hello all!

A couple weeks ago my family and I went to a neighboring town to see the Lipizzaner show. The photographer in me really really wished it had been dark outside so they could have used a spotlight (that would have been so dramatic!).....but I'm glad to have gotten these shots at least. Lol They were absolutely beautiful horses!

And yes, I checked. They ARE stallions. (or at least some of them are) I also got to see their big bus that they haul in...HUGE. Wow. I don't know how they travel quietly with stallions, but they do. They're in work mode, not breeding mode, I guess. And very well trained.

Oh, and they also had a big, gorgeous Friesian backstage, but they didn't use him in the show. Darnit.

On to pics.....


Their quadrilles were very good.





Flying lead change.






















More coming.....

People don't give stallions enough credit sometimes. They aren't monsters. These guys show that nicely. They travel together and are stalled close to each other, and we hear of no problems involving their behavior towards each other or humans.

These pictures are wonderful! I love the flying lead change pictures and the first one of your second post very much.

Awesome pictures! I remember when they came to my area & we went. They were incredible! Such gorgeous horses & fancy movers I took a bazillion pictures too only they're not nearly as nice as yours! The arena they were in was bad for photo taking, especially with my camera lol. Got some nice videos too (for me ha ha) i'd LOVE to see them again.

Great pics they were in my area a few years ago but I wasn't able to go.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Wow! I remember seeing them a few years ago with my old trainer. I've always wanted to work with Lipizzaners. Gorgeous photos
