The "World Famous" Lipizzaner Stallions

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 3, 2008) -

WHAT?

The "World Famous" Lipizzaner Stallions proudly present their 38th anniversary presentation of the "Dancing White Stallions"! Over the years, more than twenty-five million people throughout North and South America, Europe, Australia and Hawaii have seen this internationally acclaimed spectacle. The Lipizzaner Stallion has galloped boldly out of the pages of over 400 years of history and is now preserved as an equestrian work of art, performing a unique equine ballet without rival. Harkening back to a time when the horse was a symbol of grace and majesty, the Lipizzaner Stallions are truly a great experience to be enjoyed by the entire family!

The "World Famous" LIPIZZANER STALLIONS includes many of the traditional movements and exercises presented at the world-renowned Spanish Riding School of Vienna. While maintaining a classical presentation of the Lipizzaner, also featured is the forefather of the Lipizzaner - the Spanish Andalusian. Other exciting departures from tradition include a rousing number set to the big band music of the swing era.

Many of the horses and riders who appear in this 38th Anniversary edition were hand picked by producer Gary Lashinsky to perform in this family oriented arena attraction. Over the years, more than twenty-five million people throughout North and South America, The United Kingdom, Europe, Australia and Hawaii have seen this internationally acclaimed spectacle.

The graceful dance of the Lipizzaner Stallions is a breathtaking ballet over 400 years in the making. A highlight of the performance is their spectacular leaps and maneuvers known as the "Airs Above the Ground" which were born in the fury of the battlefield. Now these stunning maneuvers are preserved as an equestrian work of art that you can witness from the safety of your seat!

The Lipizzan is a rare and unique breed; its history and culture is known worldwide. The Walt Disney movie The Miracle of the White Stallions, depicting General George S. Patton saving them at the end of World War II from certain extinction, created an even greater worldwide interest in the Lipizzaner breed. Had it not been for Patton, there would be no Lipizzans today.

One does not need to be a horse lover to enjoy the skill and beauty of the "The Dancing White Stallions".
