History, Art, Music in Motion
Tempel Lipizzans is a breeding, training and exhibition facility in Northern Illinois where the rare and noble Lipizzan horses can be found. 30 stallions are in full classical dressage training year-round in preparation for public exhibitions in the summer season.
The mission of the Tempel Lipizzans is today as it has been since 1958: to promote classical dressage and the Lipizzan breed in the United States through a careful breeding and training program. Our public performances and behind-the-scenes tours serve to educate on the history of this classical art through the beauty of synchronized movements, the harmony of a partnership between horse and rider and the impressive athleticism and training of the airs above the ground, or haute Ecole movements.
