The South African Lipizzaners have earned the honour of being the only performing Lipizzaners outside Vienna recognised by and affiliated to the Spanish Riding School and a close association is maintained between the two establishments.

Over the years, the South African Lipizzaners have become an integral part of South Africa’s cultural heritage.

Today, under the executive directorship of Laddie Chester, the guidance and patient watchfulness of the Lipizzaner Trust and supported by many volunteer helpers, the South African Lipizzaners appear on film and television and at various public performances as well as their regular Sunday morning shows.

Sunday Performances

The South African Lipizzaners perform every Sunday morning at 10.30am in their majestic indoor hall in Kyalami.

The performance lasts about 60min without an interval. Refreshments and memorabilia are available before and after the performance. Tickets can be booked through Computicket or bought at the door.

Cost of tickets: R80 per adult, R50 per child(under 12) and R60 per pensioner.

After Each Performance the stables are open to the public – Everyone is invited to feed the Lipizzaners and enjoy a light lunch at Café Capriole.
