The Roanoke County Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, along with Brook Hill Farm present the first ever showcase in the Roanoke region of Herrmanns’ Royal Lipizzan Stallions. Witness first-hand the power and grace of these majestic horses, whose royal history can be traced back to the 16th century and to the Hapsburg Royal Family of Austria.
The graceful showmanship of the stallions becomes evident as they perform their beautiful “ballet”. You won’t forget the excitement you feel when they display their strength by performing the powerful leaps and jumps in the “Airs Above the Ground” demonstration. These maneuvers were originally used by men in battle and only those stallions that show an early talent and athletic ability are trained for this unparalleled demonstration.
Don’t miss three very special performances, Friday, June 29th at 6pm, Saturday, June 30th at 6pm and Sunday, July 1st at 2pm, at Roanoke County’s Green Hill Park, located at 2501 Parkside Dr, Salem VA 24153. Bring your own lawn chairs and picnic or purchase concessions on-site.
40% of the ticket sales will be going to help support Brook Hill Farm, a 501 c(3) non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide rehabilitation focused services as well as a safe haven for unwanted horses, while maintaining a unique opportunity for personal growth and equine education for area at risk youth.
