WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
On the farm of family Peternel in Globoko, Upper Carniola, close to the famous lake Bled, we breed Lipizzans since 1994. Besides breeding we are also dedicated to carriage driving. Our stud was named after our first mare Barbana, who we acquired in 1994. For some years now we promote the Lipizzan horse at equestrian events, such as events of the State Stud Lipica and the Slovenian Association of Private Breeders of the Lipizzaner or at driving competitions.... (read more) We also regularly participate in smaller cultural and touristic events organized by local clubs or other associations. The main task at Barbana Lipizzans is of course the breeding of the Lipizzan horse. The herd consists of 10 brood mares, among them also a black one. Each year we breed several foals.
Our stud is based on a small herd, so that we can keep a close relationship with each of the horses. Our young horses are kept in an open stable all year round and enjoy 10 ha of pastures, where they grow up in mixed herds.
We are dedicated to raising the recognition of the Lipizzan breed and promoting the Lipizzaner. The foundation of our breeding is increasing the quality of breeding and providing the best conditions for young horses so they will have the best possible predispositions for their later life.
