I've seen them - years ago. They are really majestic looking creatures.
I've heard of them and seen them on TV.
Thank you for the link, rooster.
Seeing them in person is rather special.
My sister trains horses, and those movements arent easy. Not all breeds have the capacity to do them.
A Lippa-Trupa what?
I'm pretty sure I did long ago, probably when visiting Vienna.
That's where their from.
They didnt come here till around 1970. I saw them in around 72.
I've heard some very disturbing things about 'dressage' training.
In the wrong hands, yes.
Training a horse does not require cruel methods. They are intellegent animals, and learn well with kindness.
I have no doubt, Carla, that training a horse does not require cruel methods.
I am aware that many do use terrible, cruel methods to train animals.
Some that should not be in the position to be trained.
I've seen them on TV and at the circus many years ago. The ones that make the hair stand up on my arms are the Budweiser Clydesdales. I've seen them in person and they are magnificent.
They are! I adore those horses. Ive ridden a clydesdale, when i was young. Might as well have been doing the splits:]
But sweet as they can be.
They are so sturdy looking - not like race horses that look like they're going to break a leg any moment.
A thoroughbreds legs really arent that thin, they are just very long and appear that way.
But...draft horses...bred for labor. Big hooves and thick legs. Built to toil in the feilds and pull heavy loads.
Im telling you things you already know...sorry.
Love them both. :)
I've only watched them on TV. That was pretty cool.
Just on TV.
Not yet, but they are beautiful.
If you get the opportunity, take it:)
I do, vaguely. We watched that show every sunday ( i think) evening. I would have been four. I will talk to my sister about it. I will bet that she remembers it well.
Friends and I went up to Hershey when the horses showed up there. It was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Amazing and beautiful creatures!
Im glad you were able to see them ozzy. They are amazing.
Did you enjoy it?
Oh yes, I saw them often on TV and in some movies.
Their origins and their history are really special:
"Spanish, Barb, and Arabian stock were crossed at Lipizza, and succeeding generations were crossed with the now-extinct Neapolitan breed from Italy and other Baroque horses of Spanish descent obtained from Germany and Denmark. While breeding stock was exchanged between the two studs, Kladrub specialized in producing heavy carriage horses, while riding and light carriage horses came from the Lipizza stud."
The other line:
A popular Disney movie:
About the Spanish Riding School
About the Habsburg Dynasty
Yes...they are quite special.
One of my nephews horses is half lippizzan half andalusian. He is a sweet and easy animal:)
Oh yes, Carla, horses are very special, and there are many amazing breeds.
I was raised with tennessee walking horses. My sister still breeds and trains them.i have to say that ive riden many different breeds, but walkers remain my favorite.
Oh, I can imagine that, they look great.
And there are so many remarkable horse breeds all over the world.

There are. Proven by that very long list!
