We are pleased to inform people who either missed the SRS visit to Wembley last year or who expected them to be in
Birmingham and so missed them that you now have a chance to put that to rights.
The Spanish Riding School are coming to the NIA on 16th 17th 18th November.
After four sell out shows at London's Wembley Arena in 2011, The Spanish Riding School of Vienna announce they will be bringing the
famous Lipizzaner stallions back to the UK in November 2012.
Their show is an impressive display of classical equitation in the Renaissance tradition of the haute école. Visitors will be mesmerised by the
absolute balance and harmony achieved by these beautiful White Lipizzaner stallions and their regal riders. All of their famous in-hand work
and movements above the ground such as the Capriole, Levade and Courbette will be performed.
Nicki Chapman will be hosting the event and giving the audience a background to their wonderful story with a special opening performance
from Olympic 2012 Champions Carl Hester , Charlotte DuJardin and Lee Pearson .
Team GB dressage riders Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin will be proudly showing off their team and her individual gold medal at their
on the UK tour of The Spanish Riding School of Vienna.
Great Britain's dressage riders won team gold and landed their first title in Olympic history followed an outstanding victory for Charlotte Dujardin
in the individual.
Britain had never previously won an Olympic dressage medal, which underlines the magnitude of their achievement
Charlotte will give a ridden demonstration to the audience with Carl explaining what the rider does to achieve some of the Grand Prix movements,
how they train the horses to do them and show why both these riders earned their Gold medals.
PLEASE VISIT THE LIVE NATION WEBSITE www.livenation.co.uk FOR TICKETS or contact our office and we will order them for you.
SPANISH RIDING SCHOOL VISIT TO WEMBLEY
WE WERE THERE
It was a real pleasure to meet so many of you at Wembley in November.We are glad to hear you enjoyed the performance. Magical was a
word often used to describe the performances.
The current Wembley performances were preceded by a choreographed routine performed by Olympic and Paralympic dressage riders
Carl Hester and Lee Pearson which went down well with both Lipizzaner owners and the public alike.
Thank you for all your kind comments about our stand. We were pleased with it too. We would like to thank everyone who gave their time so willingly
to help out. The Ash Family and the Hardy Family & the Hayes Family especially who both gave up so much time over the four days to help man the stand.
From the feedback we have received, the mood of the public was very encouraging. It made a pleasant and light hearted atmosphere.
We met so many new people and the interest shown in the breed was very encouraging.
Classical horsemanship came to wide audience and for the Lipizzaner, as you know, an endangered breed, it can only be a good thing.
We have Live Nation Ltd and Universal Music Arts & Entertainment Ltd
to thank for this as their advertising and promotion of the event certainly seemed to pay off. Three of the days were a complete
sell out with the recently added Thursday performance almost so. The more people who know about the breed and enjoy what they have seen, the better.
We have spoken to 100's of people both during and after the visit and they have been interested in learning more about the Lipizzaner, several
wanting to ‘touch a live one'. Thank you so much to those who have agreed to show people your beautiful horses.
The LNSA of GB offer a warm welcome to the riders and Lipizzan Horses of the Spanish Riding School of Vienna on their return to The UK , and wish them a successful and enjoyable tour.
WE WILL BE THERE.
