The date is Sunday, August 20th, 2017. Come out to Tempel Farms (near Gurnee Mills) for a gourmet box lunch picnic and to enjoy a performance of the famous Lipizzans horses. The performance chronicles the horses’ training from the youngest foals to the most highly trained stallions all performing to musical accompaniment. Performances are about 90 minutes with the stable open for self-guided touring following the show. More about the show…In the 16th and 17th centuries, many riding masters in Europe created academies where they taught sophisticated training methods, which elevated plain riding to an art form. This art of riding has survived for more than four centuries at the Spanish Riding School of Vienna and is also practiced today at Tempel Farms, home of the world’s largest privately owned herd of Lipizzan horses. The training of the Lipizzan begins when the horse is 4 years old and lasts between three to five years. The performance will introduce you to various stages of this training. Back-to-School Supplies Collection. Once again we will be collecting school supplies to benefit area elementary school students. Our support will provide essentials and help meet the needs of less fortunate students. Supplies including spiral notebooks, backpacks, markers, crayons and folders, etc. are welcome. Cash donation gifts are among the most valuable as teachers/administrators can use the money toward where the need is greatest. We are, however, happy to still accept school supply donations at the picnic.
