Welcome to the United States Lipizzan Federation!  This community of Lipizzan breeders, owners and enthusiasts provides a registry for this rare baroque breed and actively works to preserve, protect and promote the Lipizzan breed.  Lipizzan horses represent over 400 years of select breeding for beauty, nobility, and a rare combination of courage, strength, ability, temperament, and intelligence.  This rare breed has captured the hearts of those of us in North America who have been fortunate enough to spend time with Lipizzans.

Just released :   USLF Symposium hotel information

Message from USLF President, Tim Foley

Great news. The 2014 USLF Symposium will be held at Tempel Lipizzans, October 3,4 and 5, 2014. We can promise you exciting horses, beautiful fall weather and an extraordinary venue. Join us at the cradle of the Lipizzan in America. If you can only attend one symposium, this is the one.  

 Are you interested in helping on some projects?

The Lipizzan - by Horse Flicks - a short preview Published by Horse Flicks on Oct 21, 2013 


The Horse Flicks video shoot Oct. 19 was hosted by White Horse Vale in GoldenDale, WA.  We had beautiful fall weather and a gathering of horses and riders to show the variety of wonderful abilities of our favorite breed!  One of the highlights was an impromptu quadrille performed by riders and horses who met together for the first time the evening prior to the shoot.

June Boardman posted the following:   "Congratulations everyone! This is going to be fantastic!"     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37Rb9zLZ_5Y

Coming to HRTV, a new TV series on Endangered Breeds, horse breeds whose numbers are decreasing and could face extinction in the not too distant future. Learn about the history, heritage, versatility and heart of the Lipizzan, and why this is a breed worth saving.

Thank you June Boardman and Arne Hettman for organizing and hosting. The USLF’s video on the Lipizzan was filmed in Goldendale, WA, at White Horse Vale. 

Thanks to all who volunteered their time and horses to make this HRTV film a success.  This video, also sponsored by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, will highlight the Lipizzan’s versatility, trainability, and intelligence and should show the desirability and the availability of Lipizzans to a wide audience of horse enthusiasts.  We’ll keep you posted with the dates when this will air.
