The social-status viewpoint of human and animal coexistence is a phenomenon of the 20th century, for the animal doesn‘t serve as a basic source of food, but is important in a sociological, cultural and symbolic sense. To have an expensive and rare animal is the same as having a good car.
The horse is actually an ideal animal, because it occurs in all forms of animal and human coexistence. It is a splendid farm animal, of excellent taste, a perfect worker; diligent, strong, fast and very cheap, appreciated as well in the jet set as with farmers, a good actor in movies, a brave soldier, intelligent, versatile in sport, quite demanding and sensible as all mannequins and at the same time a symbol without comparison.
The landscape adapts to the horse, not the horse to the landscape, Lipica is actually not Karst, Lipica is stud farm in Karst, and the stud farm is a system.
The system is an environment, in which special and precisely set rules are valid. Because of these distinguished rules, the Lipica of today came into existence. Lipica in Karst is a system within the system. If the horse wasn’t here, there would be no system and therefore there wouldn’t be any Lipica.
It’s similar with golf. Why does a golf course equal the golf course in Bled or one in San Francisco, or why do all golf courses look similar? Because it is a system, with precisely pre-set rules. Despite the opportunity to make use of the extraordinary topography of sinkholes, they filled them up with soil or elegantly avoided them. Because it is a disturbance to the system, the rules are clear and binding. The more a society is closed and unapproachable, stricter are the rules.
The arrangement of the golf course in Lipica is problematic. Not from the viewpoint of tourist requirements or economic reasons. Lipica is an artificial system, originated exclusively because of the horses. If it weren’t for the horses, there would be no Lipica.
The stud farm is a system, shown on three levels. In the symbolic, (the pride of the state?) spatial (the objects, cultural landscape of pasture, fences…) and functional sense (horse management, daily migration, maintenance, pasture, training, competitions). As such it is the ultimate, self-sufficient and superior.
The golf course has similar characteristics. This is why both systems simply cannot survive in one area.
