Lipizzan and XL Horses for Sale or Adoption
Due to the relatively low numbers of Lipizzans in North America, many people are surprised to discover that individual Lipizzans are for sale. Our goal with this web page is to develop a resource for Lipizzan owners, breeders and people looking to acquire a Lipizzan.
BASIC LISTINGS are shown in order submitted or modified with the most recent listed first.

873 Atina: Atina is a beautiful 15 hand, 10 year old Lipizzan mare. Bred at the famous Tempel Farm and now trained through 2nd level, Atina is 6 months back into work after a year and a half break to have an outstanding foal. Atina is sensitive and intelligent making her a delight to train. She bonds well with her rider and likes to please. She has lovely, comfortable gaits and true to her breed shows an affinity for the piaffe and passage. A big bodied, solid mare, she takes up the leg well, accommodating a tall rider. Super ground manners, solid, sound, sane, no vices, barefoot with excellent hooves. Atina is a fun all around horse! She has begun to jump and loves it! She trail rides alone or in company, goes through water, over a tarp, opens gates. She would be fun cross country and would be a great working equitation prospect. She bonds well with her rider and is a pleasure to ride. Loads and trailers well, great for the vet and farrier. Atina is a kind, sweet mare looking for her forever home as her current owner is no longer riding. This girl is going to make her new person a great partner! 261 M. Samira XXI x Almira.

BOH After Midnight: Cute Arab/Lipizzan cross born in September 2015. Sire is purebred arabian - Al Khamsa straight Egyptian Black *Ansata Ibn Halima grandson. Dam is purebred Lipizzaner. Colt should be gray although he is very black at this time. Midnight can be double registered and should be quite refined (as are his sire and dam.) I love this cross as their gaits tend to be very suspended with great extension with the solid build of the Lipizzan. Dam is a very lovely easy going mare. Colt should mature around 15 hands.
