This is the story of the world-famous Lipizzaner stallions -- from their origins in ancient times to the almost unknown drama of their rescue in 1945. The program begins at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, where the white stallions perform an impressive display of beauty and power that celebrates a perfect harmony between horse and rider, movements originally intended for use in war.

An excellent DVD about the famed Lipizzaner stallions (and mares and foals) of the Spanish Riding School of Vienna. A good look at the year-round and multi-year lives of these superb athletes. If the DVD had been longer, there would have been things that I would like to have seen covered in depth but for this length, I thought it was a good coverage of the subject material.

You would think that NATURE DVD would have CC like their wonderful TV show does. Not so. The DVD here only has subtitles. It is disappointing there is no reason for it not to have CC when their TV show does. However, subtitles are occasionally bearable, this DVD is also not full screen-- black on top and bottom. The subtiles are set up on this DVD as a full sentence half on the screen and half on the black. It annoyed me throughout the whole program. It really is awful as I love Lipizzaners and had looked forward to watching this DVD again and again (the cimeography of the horses is superb).
I ended up sending it back today. Enough said.

Very interesting - Missing Something

By Ferris's Mom

Comments about PBS NATURE: Legendary White Stallions DVD:

As a horse owner, this episode was fascinating. It's inspiring to see the classical methods still being applied. The history section is a bit hard to follow (must re-watch it) and this show doesn't talk at all about the WWII aspect of the school. I was looking forward to more of that.
Never the less, a very well-done look at the modern day school, development of the breed and the magnificent Lipizzaner.

One fact missing

Comments about PBS NATURE: Legendary White Stallions DVD:

Most Austrians have admiration and gratitude for General Patton for saving these magnificent horses from being the spoils of war for the Russian army.
I'm surprised this vital fact was not included in an otherwise excellent present presentation.
