LIPIZANNERS ftw !!!! - updated

WOW!!! what a show!!!!

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.

UPDATE:  


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 !"   :-)

 Very cool, I saw them a couple years back. Have I ever mentioned I own a couple horses?

You may have mentioned that, I am not sure.   I love horses, but could never afford to own one.
 
 Methinks I must start an equine forum thread...

You could :-)    I love horses too, but I have not had a lot of experience with riding (and it got cut short, after I quit smoking and gained weight from over eating).   But I do seem to "get along" with them well. :-)
 
I love horses (three?), and I haven't had a lot of experience with riding either. Two of my aunts have four horses between them, but they live about three thousand miles away! I took riding lessons for a while, but anything horse-related racks up a huge bill.

I've never seen the Lipizzaners before--the closest thing I've seen would be some local dressage shows. Thanx for sharing the pictures.

You're welcome.  The video isn't one I made though, just the still pictures. But it shows the highlights of what I saw at the show.
 
what does ftw stand for anyway?
Goodhart (author)  Zaphod Beeblebrox8 years ago
literally it means:   For The Win

It is an Internet expression of enthusiasiam.

o ok,thanks

Sure (and being an older guy,  I double checked on the web to make sure...and that is a quote from one site up there in bold ;-)
