Welcome to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna!
The Spanish Riding School in Vienna is the only institution in the world which has practiced for over 440 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.
2013/05/21 — The popular programme with the up-and-coming stars from Piber in Vienna, July 23rd - August 4th, 201
Whilst the famous white Lipizzaner stallions enjoy their summer break the brood mares and their young colts and little fillies will come to Vienna bringing with them their light-hearted high spirits.
With the help of The Dressage Foundation, non-professional riders from North America will have a chance to attend the Spanish Riding School’s training center in Heldenberg, Austria. Ralph and Freddie Dreitzler and the Dreitzler family, in memory of E.L. Dreitzler, as well as Andreas Hausberger, chief rider and director of the training center, established the Heldenberg Training Center Fund to begin in 2013 in conjunction with the riding school opening its doors to international students.
With a big festival the Federal Stud Piber will start the new season on March 23rd. From that day on the stables will be open again daily from 9:30 to 17:00 hrs.
Classical Horsemanship of the highest standard blended together with exquisite baroque architecture irresistibly draws the audience under its spell.
