Lipizzan Stallion (2016)

I shot this Lipizzan stallion  last fall in Florida. These amazing stallions are trained for war (when horses used to go into battle) and this puppy would have no trouble knocking out all your teeth in one shot from his front or rear hooves. Horse and rider were like a single fighting unit. The stallions can easily jump to head level with a rider in the saddle and deliver a precision kick right on the noodle. That being said, this (well bred) horse allowed me to give him a carrot later on and I lived to tell the story.
