Lipizzaners to ride into Chaifetz


(St. Louis, MO – January 26, 2011) The “World-Famous” Lipizzaner Stallions ride into Chaifetz (SHAY-fetz) Arena at Saint Louis University for two performances on Sunday, February 13 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Tickets range from $24.50 - $32.50 for adults and $12.25-$32.50 for children (12 & under) and seniors (60 and older).  Tickets are on-sale now at, the Chaifetz Arena Box Office, MetroTix outlets at select Schnucks stores, and charge by phone at 314-534-1111.  Group discounts are available by calling 314-977-5008. 

The “World-Famous” Lipizzaner Stallions include many of the traditional movements and exercises presented at the world-renowned Spanish Riding School of Vienna.  Many of the horses and riders who appear in the show were hand-picked by producer Gary Lashinsky to perform in this family-oriented arena attraction.  Over the years, more than twenty-five million people throughout the world have seen this internationally acclaimed spectacle.

The graceful dance of the Lipizzaner Stallions is a breathtaking ballet over 400 years in the making.  A highlight of the performance is their spectacular leaps and maneuvers known as the “Air Above the Ground” which were born in the fury of the battlefield.  Now these stunning maneuvers are preserved as an equestrian work of art that can be witnessed from the safety of one’s seat.

Harkening back to a time when the horse was a symbol of grace and majesty, the Lipizzaner Stallions are a fun and entertaining family experience.  One does not need to be a horse lover to enjoy the skill and beauty of “The Dancing White Stallions.”
