The Famous Royal Lipizzan Stallions of Austria
A Testimonial from a Horseback Rider...
No matter what type of riding lessons you may have taken in the past, nothing can compare with the experience provided by the Original Herrmann’s Royal Lipizzan Stallions ranch. The one-on-one attention in a serene setting on one of the most magnificent members of the equine world is nothing short of magical. From the moment you walk into the immaculate barn, to the time you have to leave, you will find yourself doing an extraordinary amount of smiling. No matter what your skill level is, the instructor makes you feel relaxed and works with you patiently to be sure you understand her directions and can make the most of each lesson. And even if you are a novice at dressage – as I was --every lesson leaves you feeling a little more confident. The object is not to see how fast you can become adept at dressage. Rather, the instruction focuses on the essential aspect of feeling at one with the horse. You learn to enjoy the pure pleasure of working with the animal. Riding these horses is exceptionally rewarding, as they are not only extraordinarily beautiful but keenly intelligent and very well trained. Sometimes you truly feel like pinching yourself to make sure you're not just dreaming you are on a Lipizzan stallion.

History of the Lipizzan's
Founded in the 16th century for the exclusive use of the Hapsburg Royal family of Austria, the Royal Lipizzan's are unquestionably the rarest, most aristocratic breed of horses in the world. The pride of the Hapsburg Empire, the Lipizzan breed was first established by Archduke Charles at Lipizza (now part of Yugoslavia).
Only a few hundred have ever existed at any one time. Indeed, it is a contemporary miracle of sorts that this precious bloodline is not extinct, having barely been saved by General George Patton from the Russian advance during World War II. The Lipizzan's celebrated escape was recounted in the Walt Disney movie, "Miracle of the White Stallions".
Assisting Patton in the clandestine mission to rescue the regal Lipizzan's, Colonel Herrmann and his father, Colonel Ottomar Herrmann, Sr., smuggled the horses out from far behind enemy lines, riding at night and hiding by day. "We moved out into the night with nothing," recalled Herrmann, "only a handful of horses". The Lipizzans' they saved under the protection granted by Patton, were "more precious than jewels", he declared.
Colonel Herrmann, joined by two subsequent generations of Herrmann's, created an American renaissance of classical equitation's. His family maintains a 200 acre ranch in Florida to ensure the propagation of this extraordinary breed.
All Airs Above the Ground, originally outlined by Xenophon the Greek, derive from defensive horsemanship created for war and predated-dated the birth of Christ by some 400 years. These spectacular leaps and plunges were originally meant for use by mounted riders to inspire terror in the hearts of foot soldiers.
That this nearly lost art remains alive, is due in very large part, to the commitment of Colonel Herrmann, scion of the Herrmann family, and historically among the world's greatest trainers of this rare breed. In a lively and informative narrative throughout the presentation of his remarkable stallions, the history, evolution and contemporary application of this most sophisticated horse and rider training is recounted. It is repeatedly noted that extreme patience and, most particularly, love are the requisites to such highly schooled animals. Herrmann epitomized the master of classical European equitation.
Thank you to the Herrmann's for allowing us to use this account of the Lipizzan's history.
