WOODSTOCK– Herrmann’s Royal Lipizzan Stallions are at Historic New England’s Roseland Cottage from Friday, Aug. 16 to Sunday, Aug. 18. Come see these white stallions perform Airs Above the Ground and the Military Quadrille. These dramatic leaps and plunges were developed as aggressive battle maneuvers and are now among the most beautiful displays of equine grace and strength. The stallions exhibit great endurance as they perform classical dressage, Pas de Trois, and dramatic Ballotade— including such difficult measures as the Courbette, the Capriole, and the Levade. Performances at Roseland Cottage are on Friday, Aug. 16 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.,; Saturday, Aug. 17 from 2 to 3:30 p.m., and Sunday, Aug. 18 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Tickets purchased in advance are $12 for adults, $10 for children between 6 and 12 years old. Tickets purchased on the day of the event are $15 for adults, $12 for children between 6 to 12 years old. Discounts are available for members of Historic New England and groups of 15 or more. Attendees should bring their own seating. Tickets are available at HistoricNewEngland.org, or by calling Roseland Cottage 860-928-4074, or in person at Roseland Cottage.
