A wonderful, informative, up-close..."in your nose" tour of the performance barn of the Tempel Farms Lipizzan show stallions, including demonstration of classic dressage movements. There is so much history behind this breed of horse and it's dressage performance. Guides extremely knowledgeable. Horses and riders amazing!
