Highlights
  • See the beautiful and lively Lipizzan horses in action as you witness their morning training in the stunning Spanish Riding School
  • Enjoy a score of classical Viennese music as you watch man and horse work in perfect unison
  • For those who love horses this is a must-see, and for those who love history - the Lippizan is Europe's oldest breed of horse
Description

Experience the magic of the famous Lipizzan or Lipizzaner horses here at Vienna's Spanish Riding School. See the intelligent, lively Lipizzan horses in action as their trainers run them through the haute école or 'high school' of classical dressage - including their spectacular jump kicks. Watch 450 years of Lippizan tradition at work, as horse and rider take to the grounds, accompanied by classical Viennese music.

The Spanish Riding School is one of Vienna's most beautiful buildings, but what's inside is even more beautiful. This ticket gets you into the school to witness the training exercises the world-famous Lippizan stallions do with their trainers. You'll see soothing relaxation exercises (horse yoga?) as well as some of the more rigorous ones too.

You may even see some of the acrobatic School Jumps these horses are known for. They're not practiced every day, but you may get lucky. The whole experience is set to a score of Viennese classical music.

Originally bred by the Habsburgs to act as military steeds and royal mounts, these four-legged show-offs were once stabled in the courtyard of every royal household in central Europe. They're groomed to perfection, love to entertain, and know exactly how to enchant an audience.

With this mesmerizing morning experience you'll get to see some of the 'equestrian ballet' that makes the Lippizan, Europe’s oldest and most graceful horse breed, so revered.

Highly recommend, Get there early so you get seats (although they are not comfortable) We were lucky enough to see them perform some of the 'above ground' movements - The ones where they jump and kick ;)

A fabulous time, and if you are in to horses then I’d say stay for the full 2 hours. We saw jumps as well as regular schooling ... a lovely surprise !

Great opportunity to see the horses being schooled. As Dressage rider I loved it, but my non-riding companion thought it was great too. It does get crowded so get there early and wait in line for a seat. Otherwise it is standing room only.

Interesting but this was a training session in which younger and older horses were taken through the various gaits - walking, cantring, galloping etc. After a while this became repetitious unless you were interested in the finer points of horse riding.
