Historic New England welcomes family favorite Herrmann's Royal Lipizzan Stallions in Essex this month. The Herrmann family, breeders and trainers of the famed Lipizzan horse, demonstrates the highest levels of horsemanship. These stallions are among the last horses capable of executing the "Airs Above the Ground" maneuvers, dramatic leaps and plunges that were developed as aggressive battle maneuvers in the sixteenth century and are now among the most beautiful displays of equine grace and strength. Snacks and souvenirs will be available for purchase. Please bring seats and bug spray. Fri., Sept. 13, 5-6:30 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 14, 2-3 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 15, 2-3 p.m. Historic New England members, $10, ages 6-12, $8. Nonmembers, $12, ages 6-12,$10. www.historicnewengland.org
