Lipizzan Horses for Sale (84)
Lipizzaner horses are famous “Pegasus” – looking horses whose history of survival through the World War II was shown I the Walt Disney’s movie “Miracle of the White Stallions”. They appeared as early as 800 AD. They are a mix of Northern African Berber horses, which were imported to Spain, and Karst horses. Karst breed was small. They had white coats and a long lifespan. They were used by Romans in battles and sports. In 1580, a stud farm called “Lipizza” was created in what’s now Yugoslavia. That’s where the two breeds were mixed to develop the first Lipizzaner horse. These are beautiful and elegant horses. Even though they were initially bred as war horses, they do very well in dressage. Their smooth gait has been charming people for centuries. Their coats are mostly gray, but the horses look white. Lipizzaner horses get a “gray” classification due to their black skin. Their growth stops when they turn seven, but the maturity comes at 10 thanks to their Karst ancestry. Lipizzaner equines stand about 15 – 16 hands high. They have a muscled body with a long back, arched neck, and silk tail and mane. You can find several Lipizzaner horses for sale on this website.
