Hermanns’ Royal Lipizzan Stallions

The Lipizzan stallions (and a few mares) came to the historic Cogswell’s Grant in Essex, Massachusetts September 7-9th, 2012.  I stopped by for the show on Saturday to see the beautiful and graceful horses which I admired since I was a little girl.  It was a great venue to see the horses, riders and their trainers because I could get close to the ring and visit the horses in the mobile stalls.  Hermanns’ are based out of Florida and travel the US in the summer for performances and demonstrations.  All these horses are direct descendants of the breed developed in the 16th century in Austria.
