Cameo Lipizzans is/was a small private breeding and dressage facility located in Snohomish, Washington. We are moving on to other adventures and no longer have horses. Darnit!

Lipizzaners can trace their history back to the early 1560's. During the Moorish occupation of Spain, the finest Arab blood was introduced and fused with the local athletic Spanish horse. During the renaissance period, there was a revival of interest in The Classical Art of Riding. Ultimately, that Spanish Breed was deemed the ideal mount because of his exceptional sturdiness, beauty, and intelligence.

There are many fascinating histories written about this time period. The Lipizzan has always been thought of as a “living treasure”, and thus sought after by invading armies. If you are into history, the story of how this breed has survived is incredible. If history is not your thing, you still must admit that to be able to trace any of the purebred Lipizzans pedigrees back 400 plus years is mind boggling.

Cameo Lipizzans has a clear understanding of the great responsibility we have as Lipizzan breeders to maintain 400 years of standards. If you are looking for a classic, baroque horse that has been selectively breed for correct conformation, wonderful gaits, and the perfect temperament, give Lipizzans a good hard look.
