Lipizzaner, who are you?
The Lipizzaner horse is renowned for its kindness. One can safely ride a Lipizzaner. It is very enduring, spontaneous, generous and frank. It is known universally, mainly through the Spanish school of Vienna where the traditions of horsemanship were preserved.
A particular breeding
Gerard and Christian Philip have always lived with horses and discovered Lipizzaners in 1982. Allured by this imperial horse, then very rare in France, they decide to develop their breeding , with 20 different mares and 5 stallions. Their farm is currently classified among larger european private breeding farms.
All their horses originate in the farm of Piber in Austria and are descendants or nearest relatives of the famous stallions of the Spanish school of Vienna.
