Majestic White Horses pays homage to horses in general and the Lippizans horses in particular. Horses are and always have been an essential part of human civilization. Our natural connection with and dependence on this most elegant and courageous animal is the stuff of both epic and historical fact. For literally thousands of years, horses have helped humanity evolve and grow.

This film captures the heart and mystique of this great animal, focusing on the world’s most famous horses, the Lippizans of Austria, and their home, the internationally famous Spanish Riding School of Vienna. From birth, through a horse’s youth and ultimately to the crowning achievement of its entrance into the School, the film follows the development of these incredible horses.
