The Lipizzaner Stallions are coming to the Lehigh Valley this weekend!  Sunday, October 18th, 2009, they will be performing at Lehigh University's Stabler Arena at 2PM and 6PM.

 

The Lipizzaner Stallion Performing the Capriole

 

The Lipizzaner breed originated in Vienna, Austria around 1700.  The horses and riders ride the routines to music.  It seems as if they are dancing.

 

The highlight of the performance is the "Airs Above the Ground".  This routine includes leaps and maneuvers once used by soldiers in he battlefield to protect themselves.

 

The horses show strength and skill in the Levade, in which they maintain a hunched position at a 45 degree angle, The Capriole, in which the stallions leap into the air, simultaneously tucking their forelegs under their chests and fiercely kicking out their hind legs, and the Courbette, in which the horse rears on it's hind legs and hops forward.

 

Tickets are availalable in advance or at the show.
