The finest Lipizzaner’s in the World on Television …..

PBS Celebrates the Legendary White Stallions May 1st, Wednesday Evening

The striking white Lipizzaner stallions of the famed Spanish Riding School in Vienna have been thrilling audiences for centuries. During the winter public performance season, the horses execute breathtaking displays of carefully choreographed and synchronized movements known as high classical dressage. The riding school‚Äôs success relies on the strong bonds the animals establish with their riders during years of training; Lipizzaner stallions go through a minimum of six years of practice and preparation before performing publicly. Legendary White Stallions explores how Lipizzaners have developed from horses bred for war in the rugged Atlas Mountains of North Africa into living works of art capturing the hearts of millions in a world-famous court of kings. ‚ÄúLegendary White Stallions‚ÄĚ premieres Wednesday, May 1 at 8/7 check local listings).
