A big group of us went up north outside of Sarasota to see the Lipizzaner horses in training for their summer shows. This was quite a treat as I haven't watched them before and had no idea they were close by!

The Hermann family has been doing this for years and for some reason, the women became the trainers, not the men. We were given the history of the horses, how they came to America, how they were used in the wars, and more. It was all very interesting.

Watching them in action was fascinating and this trip was very worthwhile!
