Experience the SA Lipizzaners at Nampo Cape

Prepare to be amazed at Nampo Cape 2023 as they bring audiences the mesmerizing performances of the world-renowned South African Lipizzaners. From 13 – 16 September at Nampo Cape in Bredasdorp, these elegant white stallions will leave attendees spellbound with their breathtaking moves.

But that’s not all! We’re offering you a chance to witness the incredible ballet of the Dancing White Stallions, a privilege shared with only two other places in the world. Get ready to be awestruck as they showcase jaw-dropping maneuvers inspired by ancient battles, all set to unforgettable tunes you won’t be able to resist singing along to. It’s not just a show; it’s an interactive, educational, and musical experience for the young and the young at heart!


Nestled at the Mistico Equestrian Centre, just outside Paarl, the South African Lipizzaner Centre is more than just a Non-Profit Organization; it’s a guardian of the majestic Lipizzaner horse in South Africa, ensuring the legacy of classical dressage lives on.

Picture this: Lipizzaner horses and their skilled riders performing meticulously choreographed routines to enchanting music. It’s like stepping back in time and witnessing history come to life through their graceful movements. The Lipizzaner, one of the world’s oldest domesticated horse breeds, was bred for battle, making them iconic war-horses of the Middle Ages. Despite being born black or dark brown, these horses grow up to be almost exclusively white, creating a striking contrast on the stud farm against their silvery-white mothers.

But there’s more to this story. The Lipizzaner horse plays a vital role in shaping the future of young South Africans through our FirstRand development program. We’re not just securing the Lipizzaner’s future; we’re also nurturing the dreams of the youth in our community.

Mark your calendars and spread the word – this year’s Nampo event is not to be missed! Join the show for an unforgettable experience with the Dancing White Stallions and immerse yourself in the magic of these magnificent creatures.
