Lipizzan Riding Center


Lipizzan Riding Center
Slovenia Slovenia

The Lipizzan Riding Center near Sezana, is a green oasis established by the Austrian Archduke Karl of Hapsburg  in 1580 in order to breed the spirited Lipizzaner horses. As characteristic for their breed, the colts and fillies are born as a brown or mouse-grey color, which becomes  the infamous grey as they age.  Most adult Lipizzaner are predominantly white. The highly intelligent Lipizzaner originally served as draught and parade animals, but now they are used as riding, dressage, and carriage horses. Here the horses are trained according to the principle of classical dressage. Hidden Trails now offers you the opportunity to ride and train on these magnificent horses. The history of Lipica is full of stories of  the emperors and rulers who admired the white stallions so much and of stories of Slovene peasants who remained faithful to their white beauties.
The Slovenian coast of the Adriatic Sea, with its mild Mediterranean climate is a perfect getaway and only a couple of hours from Venice, Italy.
The riding center uses the classical riding methods to achieve unity and harmony of the rider and the horse. Here tradition and a modern approach go hand in hand. This is a place where the noble Lipizzaner takes you to explore the magical Karst world, with sinkholes and paths winding amongst the Karst junipers.
