So, I don't know crap about horses, but these white weirdos are the real deal. A few years ago I spent a morning with the Sheikh's horses in Dubai, and I have to say that these white Lipizzaners were way cooler than his divas.
The Lipizzaner horses of Slovenia are a world class breed. This farm in Lipica, Slovenia has been producing the horses for longer than any other horse farm, undisturbed. Many of the lines can be traced back 5 centuries.
The horses are typically used for dressage as they are very powerful, agile, and smart. I did not get to ride one (thank god for that - I would probably fall off), but we hung with the big boys and they were definitely cool.

The horse farm was very quiet
This was our trainers favorite horse - he called him a wild Italian. The horse was very dirty and reminded me of Sean Connery in The Rock (before he shaves).
Me and my bud, after this, the horse next door flipped his shit and started kicking the walls. The trainer said he was jealous and made us all leave.
