60th Anniversary Gala

60th Anniversary Gala

Sat ยท July 21, 2018

Doors: 5:30 pm / Show: 5:30 pm (event ends at 10:00 pm)


2018 marks the 60th year since our original twenty horses were imported from Piber, Austria in 1958 thereby establishing the herd now known as the Tempel Lipizzans. Today, we are the largest, privately owned herd of Lipizzan horses in the world. Our goal is the same today as it was sixty years ago: to promote the art and culture of classical riding and the Lipizzan breed in the United States. We hope you can celebrate this momentous year with us by attending our Gala Celebration on July 21, 2018. Visit www.tempellipizzans.com/gala for more information.

Lipizzaner Stallions have been enchanting audiences for 450 years. Witness art and history come to life at one of our summer performances. From the playful bounding of new foals to the strong, precise jumps of our stallions, the whole family will be captivated by the strength, beauty, and intelligence of these horses. Each performance, set to music, is a study in classical horsemanship which has been practiced in Europe since the 16th century; the Lipizzaners have been performing at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria since the 1500's. There are very few places in the United States where such an art can be observed. We offer a taste of Vienna, Austria right in your back yard.
