Event description
"How a Lipizzan Stallion learns to dance". Designed for horse lovers that want to know more...

About this event

​Enjoy the festive holiday spirit in our sprawling indoor arena under heat lamps and in our decorated stallion stables. This is a live, moderated event which explains beginning to advanced dressage training. Following the training session, have your photo taken with "Santa Brosie" and tour the stables where there's a stocking on each stall door.

Our equine dancers may be born with the genetic material to perform their graceful moves, but it takes the intersection of a thoughtful rider and a willing horse to create the great expression of harmony through movement for which the Lipizzan horse is known. Each segment is moderated by our Program Director and takes time to explain the basics of how Lipizzans are raised, trained and taught to "dance".

Less than an hour drive from downtown, Tempel Lipizzans is a European cultural gem right in your backyard.

Organizer The Tempel Lipizzans

Organizer of Holiday Tour and Training Session

Located in Old Mill Creek, IL on the property of Tempel Farms, Tempel Lipizzans is a full time dressage training facility in which experienced trainers adhere to the standards of training established hundreds of years ago in the classical schools of Europe. 

The mission of the Tempel Lipizzans is today as it has been since 1958; to promote classical dressage and the Lipizzan breed in the United States through a careful breeding and training program. Our on site public exhibitions and behind-the-scenes tours serve to educate on the history of this classical art through the beauty of synchronized movements, the harmony of partnership between horse and rider and the impressive athleticism and training of the airs above the ground, or haute école movements. The Lipizzan breed is now considered an endangered domestic animal with numbers of less than 8,500 worldwide.
