About Lipizzan HorsesAbout Lipizzan Horses



rnrnLipizaan Horses (alsornknown as Lipica or Lipizzano horses) were developed in Lipizza (Lipica), a smallrnlocality near Trieste, which is today in Slovenia, but was Italian up to the SecondrnWorld War and before that, Austrian. Its origins date from the mid-16th century,rnthrough an initiative of the Archduke Charles of Stiria, third child of the EmperorrnFerdinand I of Austria. Factors contributing to the choice of the Lipizza area includedrnthe good quality of the horses which populated Carso and the Aquileiese area andrnthe favorable climate, plus its proximity to areas of great horse-breeding traditionrnand the production of excellent horses.

rnrnThe current productionrnof the thoroughbred Lipica-Lipizzano Horse derives from two Italian stallions (Conversanornand Napolitano), two Klaudrubs, one Danish and one Oriental Arab.

rnrnIt is the horse ofrnthe celebrated Spanish School of Viena, founded in 1729 by Charles of Austria.

rnrnAt the end of thernSecond World War, Italy (like Austria and Yugoslavia) managed to maintain a veryrnnumerous and complete nucleus of the ‘families’ making up the Lipizzano Breed. Inrnan exciting episode, in the spring of 1945 the records of the breed and a preciousrnherd were delivered to the Italian Ministry of Defence, which maintained the latterrnin the Centres of Montemaggiore. Later on, this responsibility fell to the Ministryrnof Agriculturem which entrusted the management to the Experimental Institute forrnZootechnology, located a short distance from the State Experimental Agency of TorrnMancina in Monterotondo. In the Italian State Experimental Agency, the white Lipica-Lipizzanornhorses have been bred with pure blood lines for 50 years, with great seriousnessrnand competence.

rnrnItaly, thanks to thernState’s breeding of Lipizzano Horses, has been able to be a member of the LipizzanrnInternational Federation. The Stud Book of the breed was established in 1984 byrnthe Italian Horse-breeders’.

rnrnToday they are bredrnnot just in Lipizza, but in Austria (Piber), in Italy (Monterotondo - Roma) andrnin Hungary.
