A story of the white "dancing" Lippizan horses of Vienna, Austria
24 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw the movie "Florian" around the very early 1950's. There was even an older book with the same title and story. Have been searching for a way to obtain this Robert Young movie for many years. It was my introduction to the Lippizanner stallions, their offspring, and rigorous training. It inspired me to begin riding Dressage later in life. And ultimately becoming a Trakehner horse breeder. The stories of these two breeds, and what happened to them during the European wars has many parallels. The Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria has been the home to Lippizan horses for centuries. Dressage riding looks so easy and effortless! Nothing could be further from the truth. It takes subtle cues from the rider, and complete synchronization of horse and rider. Training can take many years to achieve the wonderful "above airs" moves. This movie had a tremendous impact on my life!
