I did the White Stallion of Lipizza for a book report and loved it! It is written by the same author as King of the Wind and Justin Morgan had a Horse.

This story features a boy with a dream of riding a white stallion in the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. The plot is exciting and almost as good as King of the Wind! I truly would recommend this book to anyone who loves horses!

From Amazon:

A young boy named Hans dreams of one day working with the famed stallions of Lipizza. But coming from a family of bakers, Hans is discouraged from ever becoming a rider. That is, until the day he is invited to watch the extraordinary Ballet of Lipizzaners—from the Imperial Box!—and his life is changed forever.

Marguerite Henry artfully includes authentic details about the skillful training of both horse and rider as she weaves the story of Hans and his beloved Lipizzan stallion, Borina. The brilliance of Hans’s dazzling public performances and his devotion to the art of classical riding make this story uniquely rich in history and horsemanship—a tale to be treasured by horse lovers of all ages.
