Herrmann's Royal Lipizzan Stallions

Lipizzan at Cogswell's Grant

Historic New England welcomes family favorite Herrmann's Royal Lipizzan Stallions for a special engagement at two properties in August and September 2014.

The Herrmann family, breeders and trainers of the famed Lipizzan horse, demonstrates the highest levels of horsemanship. These stallions are among the last horses capable of executing the "Airs Above the Ground" maneuvers, dramatic leaps and plunges that were developed as aggressive battle maneuvers in the sixteenth century and are now among the most beautiful displays of equine grace and strength. Please bring seats. Snacks and souvenirs are available.

Advance tickets are $10 for Historic New England members ($8 for children of members), and $12 for nonmembers ($10 for children).

Day-of tickets are $12 for Historic New England members ($10 for children of members), and $15 for nonmembers ($12 for children).

Children's admission prices apply to ages six to twelve. Admission is free for children five and under.

Advance tickets are nonrefundable. If a performance is cancelled because of rain, tickets are valid for all remaining performances.

Friday, September 12, to Sunday, September 14
