The Lipizzan or Lipizzaner (Czech: Lipicán, Croatian: Lipicanac, Hungarian: Lipicai, Italian: Lipizzano, Slovene: Lipicanec), is a breed of horse closely associated with the Spanish Riding School of Vienna, Austria, where they demonstrate the haute école or “high school” movements of classical dressage, including the highly controlled, stylized jumps and other movements known as the “airs above the ground.”

A Letter From Honey

To our many loyal customers:

As you may know, I’ve had my account locked and then banned in an unfortunate event promulgated by zealots.

It’s been an interesting week to say the least. Let me catch you up to date on what’s going on.

Our region, Cherry Island, has been transferred to Cherry Lastchance. She has full administrative rights over the island, and the ~Ladies’ Pleasure~ vendors will remain in place in the island and can be shopped at your discretion.  There is a re-delivery terminal in landing point, feel free to use it.  If you’ve been banned from the island, for whatever reason, you are SOL if you need a re-delivery.

Most of our content was distributed over a series of accounts as back up.  Cherry will, at some point in the next two weeks, release the RealHorse 2.0.

Over the past month, Emma has been remaking the base horse to improve the quality of the mesh and to fix a few things we weren’t entirely happy with.  Those models, Cherry’s animations, and my texture work and scripting have been moved to an administrative account and Cherry will release from that account under the brand name ‘Elite Equestrian’. The horse and its tack will be sold through this brand.  If you have purchased RealHorse 1.0. 1.1 or 1.2, you’ll be updated when Cherry brings the new vendors live – we’ll just transfer your purchasing data over to this account, along with the records for any tack/accessory purchases for the RealHorse.  We will also be releasing our new Lippizan horse around the same time.

The ~Ladies’ Pleasure~ brand will continue in SL, with clothing, ABC tack, tack for other avatars, our other avatars (cow, bull, foal) until such time as we determine we’re ready to shutter it.  In the meantime, the ABC tack and clothing has been discounted varying degrees. All I can suggest is that if there was something you wanted, get it now.  If you have a gift card, use it soon. Gift cards won’t be honored under the *Elite Equestrian* brand.

Does this sound like farewell from me?  I hope not. I’ve appealed to get my account back, but while we’re waiting, I’m not abandoning Cherry or the RealHorse – I am available to help her get it back up and running and she can always reach me via email or Skype to answer questions.

To our supporters, best regards always,

~Honey Heart

New, Saddle Foal for the RealHorse

LP-RH-152-SaddleFoal.JPG

This cutie includes a built-in halter with a name plate, blinking eyes, twitching ears, and a tail that flags as you move. Texture scripted, the Foal includes 12 foal presets (Black, Bay, Chestnut, White, Pale Gray, Dapple Gray, Piebald, Skewbald, Splash Overo, Blanket Appaloosa, Leopard Appaloosa, and Gold), 12 Halter Leather options (Black, Brown, Red, White, Blue, Purple, Pink, Teal, Aqua, Lime, Citrus, Gray), and 6 Metal options (Silver, Silver Filigree, Gold, Gold Filigree, Shiny Gold, Brass).

The Foal is Copy/Mod to allow you to make your own customized coats, but it cannot be resized for other makes or models of horse. If you add or remove prims or attempt to change the size, you will break the Foal (and you get to keep both halves).  For those who enjoy customizing, there are free UV & AO maps for the foal body & ears, plus placement template guides for the eyes and the halter plate in our in-world Cherry Island store.  You must have experience with image manipulation & access to an image editor program in order to use these guides.

Available on the Marketplace and in our in-world store.
