We got to the Lipica Stud Farm mid morning on a pretty rainy day. The long and winding road to the faciliy had many, many horses grazing. The white stallions are born black. We didn't know that.
During the morning we watched the training for the performances. We were lucky enough to watch a black stallion as well and the white Lippizaners. He was very rare, Watching the training was very interesting. They are SO precise. After the training session, there was a two hr. break befor the actual show. We went into town and had a lovely lunch with the "locals".
When we got back, we were taken on a tour of the stables. Tom and I even got to pet a couple of noses!!!
The actual show was magnificent. I can't say enough good things about it. What the horses do is breathtakingly beautiful.
If you are looking for something out of the ordinary to do while in Slovenia, don't miss out on a truly wonderful experience.
