On Feb. 5, 2004, my husband and I brought our 5 yr. old grandson to visit Herrmann's Royal Lipizzan Stallions of Austria in Myakka City, Florida.  See the most rare and aristocratic horses in the world. The highly schooled animals exhibit complex maneuvers, leaps and plunges derived from defensive horsemanship created for war that pre-date the birth of Christ by some 400 years. These famous horses are trained at Colonel Herrman's Ranch in Manatee County. This is a wonderful family activity and a chance to learn the history of the beautiful and graceful Lipizzan Stallions.   These are a few of my photos!  Enjoy!
