Vienna: Spanish Riding School Training

2. Vienna: Spanish Riding School Training

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.

The most friendly, caring staff, make this evening an unforgettable, beautiful memory and Gift for us to cherish, forever! The musicians are also very talented, performing historical pieces with a great sense of humour, in a lovely "spirit!” Thank you! “Merry Christmas,” and “Alles Gute!” “Cheers!”

Beautiful performance. Music, dance and singing. Great voices. Very nice ambiance. A real joy to watch. Just one suggestion to the organizers, people should not be able to get in after the concert starts. It’s like this all around the world. Thank you!
