Lipizzaner of Lipica

Tu pride flash

Lipizzaners are the world famous horse breed of the Lipica Stud Farm. Named after the Slovenian village Lipica, their history began 400 years ago, when stallions of the Andalusian, Barb and Berber breeds from the Riding School in Spain were brought to Lipica. It was in the 19th century that the six stud lines, among them the Arabian line were founded with the six stallions, which established the best qualities for which the Lipizzaner became known and are valued to present time: stamina, grace, good looks, intelligence, longevity, good nature and a talent for dancing.
