  •  Doubt it. Lipizanners are usually heavier-boned (5+ / 0-)

    and muscled horses, especially the performing horses, which are all stallions. I would not call this a haute ecole move either; it doesn't look balanced or controlled enough. He simply looks like he's rearing, possibly on cue, but still jus rearing. Maybe a circus horse.

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

    •  looks to me like a Spanish breed (0+ / 0-)

      such as an Andalusian.  Not heavy enough for Lippizaner, I agree. plus halter appears Mexican/Spanish vaquerro style that we see around town.  It appears that this is at some kind of public festival -- could be Los Angeles Equine Affaire or Festival of the Horse
