2006 Royal Lipizzan Benefit for ERR
Equine Rescue Resource Inc. (ERR) presents Herrmann's Royal Lipizzan Stallions of Austria at Ulster County Fairgrounds
Friday June 23 at 7:00 p.m., Saturday June 24 and Sunday June 25 at 2:00 p.m.

Founded in the 16th century for the exclusive use of the Hapsburg Royal family of Austria, the Lipizzan is unquestionably the rarest, most aristocratic breed of horses in the world. Assisting General Patton during World War II, the Herrmanns smuggled the royal stallions out from behind enemy lines to save them and feel the horses rescued were more precious than jewels. Only a few hundred have ever existed at any one time. Foremost among the leading breeders of Lipizzans is the Herrmann family who maintain a ranch in Florida to help insure the continuation of this extraordinary breed. The Herrmann Royal Lipizzans are the only horses outside of Austria authorized to wear the Royal Hapsburg brand.

The Herrmanns bring their magnificent Royal Lipizzan Stallions to the Ulster County Fairgrounds for an amazing equestrian show. These majestic horses are world-renowned, having appeared in the Disney movie Miracle of the White Stallions, as well as Radio City Music Hall.

Ticket prices at the gate are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $12 for children 6 to 12. Children 5 & under are free.

Purchase tickets in advance for discounts at Pine Bush Pet Farm Lawn and Garden, 105 Depot Street, Pine Bush, NY, or
use your credit card or PayPal account for convenient ticket ordering (email for paypal is: equinerescueresource@hotmail.com)

ERR is a non-profit organization helping horses in need.  Their volunteer network offers rescue, rehabilitation and adoption services to horses that have been abused, neglected, abandoned or unwanted.  Educational information is also available on this website.
