Here is the story of the enchanting Lipizzaner horse in my words.

The Lipizzaner is a beautiful horse with a silky mane and a gentle disposition. The breed of the Lipizzaner horse began at a farm in Kladrub, Austria, when the emperor of Austria started breeding them. He bred them mainly for battle, but ten years later he also started a riding school called the Spanish Riding School. Here the horses learned fancy dressage movements to help them in battles and in shows as well. These movements are called: passage, piaffe, ballotode and capriole.
