Legendary White Stallions Documentary (PG) 60 minutes

LEGENDARY WHITE STALLIONS - DOCUMENTARY--(PG)--Nature and PBS bring the story of the world-famous Lipizzaner stallions from their origins in ancient times in North Africa to the almost unknown drama of their rescue in 1945. The program begins at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, a unique and elite university where horses train for years to successfully execute supremely difficult maneuvers. Only a very few will master the artistic and athletic skills required to perform an impressive display of beauty and power that celebrates a perfect harmony between horse and rider, movements originally intended for use in the war in this ancient court of kings. Learn their history; spend time backstage with riders and horses, mares and their foals, and marvel at these living works of art.
