It is the monarch's first trip to the former Communist country.The highlight of the trip is likely to be a visit to Lipica, home to the world's most famous stud farm where they breed legendary dancing horses, renowned for their distinctive white coats and graceful perfomances. The Queen, a keen horsewoman, will be presented with her very own Lippizzaner stallion.
