This lippizaner horse gets put through its dressage paces in Vienna, Austria, in “airs above the ground”
The breed dates back to the 16th century where it was supported by the Hapsburg nobility

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    They’re elegant, well-trained horses, that’s for sure! Terrific action capture!

    these animals and their riders are amazing to see in action…disciplined, orderly, and formal!

    Saw their training school in what was Yugoslavia. Long time ago. Beautiful if a bit strange – and as for the meal supplied afterwards: I think I was maybe eating one that didn’t make the grade (Tesco nicked the idea..).

    I recently watched a PBS or NOVA special on the lives of these beauties.. from birth to retirement… The bonding of rider and horse and the patience required to train is admirable. I’m sure you enjoyed the show! :-)

    it made for a great afternoon seeing them put through their paces in a huge indoor arena….dirt floor, but elegant opera house like seating
