Full description
Visit the Spanish Riding School of Vienna and observe the horses during their training. In the magnificent setting of the baroque Winter Riding Academy, the training offers an insight into the years of training of the Lipizzaners and their riders. The morning exercise of the horses is accompanied by classical Viennese music. The Training includes relaxation exercises, refining and perfecting movement and strengthening certain muscles. The famous school jumps levade, courbette and capriole, which are shown as part of the performances by the Spanish Riding School, are not practiced on a daily basis and can only sometimes be seen during the morning exercise. The white Lipizzaner stallions are put through their paces by their riders almost every day. The primary objective of the morning exercise is to maintain the horses’ athleticism and health, as well as to build up various muscle groups that are necessary for performing the exercises of the haute école.

Unfortunately, relatively little was shown, I would have shown the young stallions at the beginning and the professional riders at the end, so unfortunately after a while it became relatively boring, it would have been great if one or two more figures had been shown. But the ambience is very nice.

One does not want to be on the top level. We were told not to film or take photos but people did. Woman next to me was very distracting - had her phone on constantly filming and photographing. I quietly reminded her not to but she continued through out the hour. Does no one monitor this?

This was on my "bucket list" to do, and it was well worth the visit, beautiful horses, and the training session is a great way to see how much discipline is required from both horse and rider. Was disappointed our behind the scenes tour was cancelled but the training session didn't disappoint! Fantastic experience, thoroughly enjoyed every second Carolyn, UK
