Roanoke County, Virginia (May 29, 2012) - The Roanoke County Department of Parks,Recreation and Tourism, along with Brook Hill Farm present the first ever showcase in the Roanoke region of Herrmanns' Royal Lipizzan Stallions. Witness first-hand the power and grace of these majestic horses whose history can be traced back to the Hapsburg Royal  of Austria.

You won't forget the grace or power demonstrated in the jumps in the "Airs Above the Ground" demonstration. These maneuvers were originally used by men in battle and only stallions that show an early athletic ability are trained for this unparalleled demonstration.
