Esther Buonanno, granddaughter of Tempel Farms founders Tempel and Esther Smith, said, "Classical dressage is a cultural art form and we're honored to continue to preserve not only the training, but the amazingly graceful Lipizzan breed."

For the 2021 summer season, Tempel Lipizzans offers two live outdoor experiences: The Summer Spotlight Performance and "How a Lipizzan Stallion Learns to Dance."

Following each event, guests can enjoy a self-guided tour through the stallion stables to meet the equine stars and ask questions of Tempel Lipizzans' riders, trainers and working students.
