$15.00 - $25.00

Come for a very special behind-the-scenes look at The Tempel Lipizzans training program. Our tour guides will take you through the stallion stables to learn all about the history of the Lipizzan, classical riding, and our farm. There will be several opportunities to get to know the stallions. We finish in the arena with a viewing of a daily training session. They will demonstrate how a classicaly trained horse advances through the levels to become a Quadrille or Airs-Above-Ground horse and appear in our Performances. 

In addition to our regular tour, we will be serving up complimentary hot cider and Christmas cookies. Enjoy your refreshments while we air the original footage of the Tempel Lipizzans herd being brought over from Austria in 1958. Santa Brosie will be available for family photographs from 11:15-11:45.

Tickets are not available at the door on the day of the tour.

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.
