South African Lipizzaners
The oldest human bred horse in the world, ancestors of the Lipizzaners, have been traced to Carthaginian and Roman horses at the time Julius Caesar was Emperor of Rome. These animals are characterised by a perfect and noble physique, graceful movements, the ability to learn, liveliness, good nature, courage, toughness and stamina. In 1944 a select few Lipizzaners were rescued from war-torn Austria and brought to South Africa by Count Jankovich-Besan. The stallions at Kyalami are direct descendants of those horses and their predecessors. The Lipizzaner Trust is dedicated to the advancement of this proud cultural heritage and the preservation of this most ancient breed of horse.

The South African Lipizzaners have earned the honour of being the only performing Lipizzaners outside Vienna recognised by and affiliated to the Spanish Riding School and a close association is maintained between the two establishments. Over the years, the South African Lipizzaners have become an integral part of South Africa's cultural heritage.

Today, the South African Lipizzaners appear on film and television and at various public performances as well as their regular Sunday morning shows. The South African Lipizzaners perform every Sunday morning at 10.30am in their majestic indoor hall in Kyalami. The performance lasts about 60min without an interval. Refreshments and memorabilia are available before and after the performance. The Lipizzaners can be hired to perform for companies and special occasions. Situated at 1 Dahlia Road, Kyalami
