MYAKKA CITY (FOX 13) - It’s that time of year where you can visit Herrmann’s Royal Lipizzan Stallions.
It was 300 years ago, when a knight gifted the Herrmann family with the Lipizzan, and ever since, generations have continued the aristocratic breed. Before gunpowder, the powerful horses, with much larger body and muscle mass than most breeds, were used on the battlefield by generals, princes and kings. Their kick was enough to knock out foot soldiers.
Today, Myakka City is the winter home for these beautiful horses. They spend the summer months traveling and entertaining crowds across the country.
Now is your chance to see them up close as they prepare for another season, including their newest foal, born on January 9.
They are a majestic sight to see.
