The stunning Lipizzan! We are celebrating them as our September Breed of the Month on
Dressage riders who choose Lipizzans as their mounts are eligible for special awards through the Adequan®/USDF All-Breeds Awards program, as the
United States Lipizzan Federation is a participating organization.
We recently asked our social media followers to share their favorite Lipizzans with us, and we’ve compiled some of the photos here! Check us out weekly through September for more galleries of this gorgeous breed!
