LIPIZANNERS ftw !!!! - updated
I have to share some of the pics with you that I took, even though many of them are not very good....and then I will include a video someone else did, that summarizes what I saw tonight (it was a 2 hour show).
These are magnificent animals, and as they performed, they appeared to really enjoy it...wanting to get "into" some of the more difficult moves, sometimes a bit earlier than they were supposed to :-)
Enjoy the pictures, if you can, as they are a bit small.
A friend of mine, online was questioning me about how "happy" the horses were "performing".
Well, other then the fact that they seemed to bask in all the applause they were given, the horses brought out to perform Airs Above the Ground were literally frolicking to get on with the show. They seemed to most want to do the move called the Capriole the most. Earlier in the show too, we could see them, as they sat in a line waiting to come out, pawing at the arena floor as if to say "lets get on with it !" :-)
