Lippizzan

Noble and Extraordinary.

Very few are unaware of the spectacular gray(white) Lipizzaners of the Spanish School of Riding, Vienna, who perform in the air and the highest levels of dressage movements. This breed traces its roots back to the 16th century, when there was a high demand for a majestic type of horse to carry kings into battle. Equestrian training in school formed an important part of the education for the royals and noblemen, but it required a special type of horse, one with brains, beauty, and a docile temperament.
