     Introduced by Emperor Maximillian II in 1562 for military puposes, the Lipizzaner Stallions take their name from the imperial stud farm established in 1580 in Lipizza, Italy. They perform under the auspices of Der Spanische Reitschule (the Spanish Riding School) in Vienna, which takes it name from the Spanish heritage of the breed. These superbly trained horses perform to this day in Vienna.  

For the capriole, the horse jumps in place, tucking its forelegs under its body while simultaneously kicking out with its hind legs; the levade has the horse standing back on its hind legs at a 30-degree angle which requires tremendous hindquarter strength.
