Full house cheers Lipizzaner Stallions in Victoria

The stallions demonstrated battle tactics used in war to defend themselves.

The Lipizzaner Stallions danced, pranced and leaped in choreographed routines set to classical music Sunday at the Victoria Community Center. Crowds packed into the center, filling every bench to see the famous stallions perform. In addition to the choreographed routines, the stallions demonstrated leaps and kicks that were once used to defend themselves on the battlefield. A stallion also was walked around the arena as the narrator described the uniqueness of the breed and its history from a battle horse to a horse of nobility. At the end of the show, the crowd offered a standing ovation, complete with cheers and thunderous applause.
