All over the world, the Spanish Riding School and its Lipizzaner stallions are famous and loved – but not everyone is familiar with where the horses come from and what actually happens before the young stallions come to Vienna for their training. With our summer programme “Piber meets Vienna” which takes place during the School Stallions’ well-earned summer break we would like to give our guests the opportunity to learn more about what goes on at our stud.
From the very beginning, the Lipizzaner was not only predestined for the High School of Classical Horsemanship, the horses were also always bred for their outstanding qualities as carriage horses. This summer programme therefore not only shows a delegation of eight 4-year-old performance-tested mares and brood mares with their delightful young foals but also various historical carriages and traditional uniforms.
