Spanish Riding School in Vienna
Does it make sense that a qualified young student could travel to Austria to attend a Spanish riding school and learn to ride the famous white Lipizzaner Stallions?
This is what has been written about the Spanish Riding School in Vienna
[it] “is the only institution in the world which has practiced for nearly 450 years and continues to cultivate classical equitation in the Renaissance tradition of the haute école.
The objective of classical equitation is to study the way the horse naturally moves and to cultivate the highest levels of haute école elegance the horse is capable of through systematic training. The result creates an unparalleled harmony between rider and horse, as only Vienna’s Spanish Riding School achieves.
The school is located in the center of historic Vienna.
You can buy a ticket to a concert which presents the highlights of the ballet of the White Stallions alternating with musical performances by the Vienna Boys’ Choir.
