It all began in the 16th century at Lipica in today’s Slovenia, where Andalusian horses were crossed with local steeds, resulting in the gracious grey-white Lipizzan which is marveled world over. The Austro-Hungarian Empire was a dominant empire in Europe until its destruction and division in 1918 upon the end of the I. World War. The Habsburg dynasty needed a strong cavalry horse and the result of the experiment was the Lipizzan stallion, a grand and elegant horse praised in Europe, becoming a favorite in many a country all over the world.
Lipizzans are not actually true white horses, but this is a common misconception. A white horse is born white and has unpigmented skin. Most Lipizzans are gray. Like all gray horses, they have black skin, dark eyes, and as adult horses, a white hair coat. Gray horses, including Lipizzans, are born dark—usually bay or black—and become lighter each year as the graying process takes place, with the process being complete at between 6 and 10 years of age.
The Slovenian Stud Farm in Lipica is the very original stud farm with a stable of several hundred Lipizzan horses. There is much to see at the Lipica Stud Farm: tour of the stables; a presentation by the Classical Riding School of Lipica and horse-drawn carriage tours. After visiting Lipica you will feel refreshed by the surroundings, and satisfied to have trusted us to take you there. It will always be our pleasure.
