This Tempel Lipizzan segment leaves visitors in awe as each beginner (early dressage training, i.e., walk, trot and canter), intermediate (dancing together, which is the collaboration of coordinated movements between horse and rider) and advanced trained horse gallops and “dances,” (includes the height of equine training with maneuvers like the Long Rein, the Solo Horse, the Airs Above Ground and the Quadrille). The Tempel Lipizzan Program Director Esther Buonanno and Head Trainer Bill Clements follows this performance with a question-and-answer session, and visitors can take a self-guided tour through the stallion stable during this Valentine’s Special.
