Is a levade a certain move by Lipazzaners?

It's not breed-specific, it's the name of that particular move, one of the "airs above the ground" in which the horse is to hold a position at about a 35 degree angle. It takes a very strong horse to do that. I don't know that all breeds could do it. Lipizzaners are one that can.
