With all-four hooves off the ground, Nikki, a Royal Lippizzan Stallion, performs a courbette under the direction of Gabrielle Herrmann during HerrmannŐs Royal Lipizzan Stallions performance at Hearts & Horses Therapeutic Riding Center in Buxton on Sunday afternoon September 8, 2013. Lipizzan stallions, a rare horse breed started in Austria in the 16th century, were originally bred and trained to kick and leap into the air to combat foot soldiers in battle. They now perform the same precision battle maneuvers in shows around the world. Part of the proceeds from the performance will benefit the riding center.
