Schleich 13293 Lipizzaner Stallion - RETIRED

Schleich 13293 Lipizzaner Stallion - RETIRED
A well detailed and classically posed model of a Lipizzaner Stallion.
 
The ancestors of the Lipizzan can be traced to approximately A.D. 800. The earliest predecessors of the Lipizzan originated in the 7th century when Barb horses were brought into Spain by the Moors and crossed on native Spanish stock. The result was the Andalusian horse and other Iberian horse breeds.
By the 16th century, when the Hasburgs ruled both Spain and Austria, a powerful but agile horse was desired for both military uses and for use in the fashionable and rapidly-growing riding schools for the nobility of central Europe. Therefore, in 1562, the Habsburg Emperor Maximillian II brought the Spanish Andalusian horse to Austria and founded the court stud at Kladrub. In 1580, his brother, Arch Duke Charles II established a similar stud at Lipizza (now Lipica), located in modern-day Slovenia, from which the breed obtained its name.
