Join the Rotary Club of BourneSandwich August 3rd, 4th, and 5th as they present "Airs Above the Ground" with Herrmanns Original Royal Lipizzan Stallions of Austria.
The Airs Above the Ground performances are focused on precision as the stallions offer a variety of difficult maneuvers and refined leaps. These originally defensive moves include the Levade, where the horse rises on his haunches from a standstill position and tucks his fore legs under him as he maintains a 45 degree angle; the Courbette, where the horse does several jumps on his hind legs while holding his fore legs off the ground; and the Capriole, where the horse leaps from all four feet and, at the peak of elevation strikes out violently with his hind legs.
Airs Above the Ground performances are 90 minutes long and will take place at 5PM Friday, August 3rd, and at 2PM on Saturday, August 4th, and Sunday, August 5th. They will be held at the Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School, 220 Sandwich Rd, Bourne, MA. Concessions and souvenirs will be available for purchase.
All proceeds support the stallions and the Good Works fund of the Rotary Club of Bourne-Sandwich. The club supports community-oriented non-profit organizations, awards scholarships to high school students and supports a variety of local and international charitable causes.
