Traditional Series (1:9 scale) model horse set. Adult horse measures approx. 12" x 9"*
*Please note: Due to the Lipizzaner breed, this set may measure smaller to keep in proportion with the Traditional Series scale.
One of Europe's oldest horse breeds, the Lipizzan originated in the 1500s during the time of the European Empire. The breed gets its name from Lipizza (Lipicia), Slovenia - the location of one of the first established stud farms. Today, the breed is highly sought-after for their natural talent for performing classical dressage.
Tempel Lipizzans of Illinois was founded in 1958 to promote this incredible breed and promote classical dressage, and is home to the largest privately-owned herd of Lipizzans in the world! Through their breeding and training program, they combine some of the oldest Lipizzan bloodlines with the same classical traditions and principles as the Spanish Riding School. Each summer, they offer public exhibitions which showcase the Lipizzan and the progression of classical dressage training.
Stallion Favory Airiella has been trained for the courbette, a difficult maneuver where the horse balances on its hind legs and jumps forward several times. He demonstrates this maneuver during the Airs Above The Ground Segment (haute ecole) in Tempel Lipizzans' performances. His talent is part training and part genetics: his sire was a levade horse, and his dam-sire was a capriole horse! Favory Airiella is a descendent of the original horses bred at the State Stud at Lipizza.
Favory Airiella's dam, Airiella, also resides at Tempel Farms. Noted for her nobility and athletic build, she's known for producing intelligent and athletic offspring. You'll notice that she and her son share part of their name. That's because Lipizzan stallions get the first part of their name from their sire's line (Favory) and the second part from their dam's lime (Airiella).
Through their commitment to both the Lipizzan breed and classical dressage, Tempel Farms is doing their best to ensure the tradition and bloodlines of classically-trained Lipizzans live on!
Note: Favory Airiella is depicted as a foal. Like most Lipizzans, he turned grey when he matured.
