Referred to as an equine ballet, audiences will have the unique opportunity to see the Lipizzaner Stallions perform tonight and Friday at the Curry County Events Center.

Made world famous for their beauty and graceful presentations, the Lipizzaner Stallions have included Clovis in their 41st anniversary tour.

Based on the traditions of the Spanish Riding School of Vienna, the show is expected to include 12 to 14 stallions performing choreographed dressage maneuvers.

Among routines, the “Airs Above the Ground” segment is known for the stallions’ spectacular leaps and maneuvers that were once used on the battlefield.

The Grand Quadrille performance features six to eight stallions ridden through an intricate ballet, prancing, marching and weaving their way across the floor to the music of the masters.

The Lipizzaner Stallions have performed for 23 million people throughout North and South America, Great Britain, Europe, Australia and Hawaii, according to the group’s website.

The Lipizzaner Stallions, descended from Spanish Andalusian horses, have been bred from a noble war-horse ridden by the aristocracy to “a living form of equestrian art.”
