Myakka City's Karen Pitts couldn't wait to see Herrmann's Royal Lipizzan Stallions perform for the first time.
Although the organization is close to home for Pitts, she had never seen the show.
"I've heard so much about them," Pitts said. "I know the history of the horses is big."
Pitts not only was able to see Herrmann's Royal Lipizzan Stallions perform March 5 but also other Myakka City talents.
Myakka City's Chloe Butler and Madison Roberts, who are both 15, showed off their whip cracking skills and Sydney McCullough, who is 14 and the daughter of Herrmann's Royal Lipizzan Stallions owner Rebecca McCullough, performed a karate demonstration.
The Royal Lipizzan stallions' performance benefited the Myakka City Historical Society, which is in the process of restoring the Myakka City Historic School House.
David Miller, the president of the Myakka City Historical Society, said the organization needs about $40,000 more to complete the school house, which will be opened to give the community a much-needed community center..
