The well-deserved retirement of our School Stallions

Our stallions retire when they are around 25 to 28 years old and they spend the rest of their days at the Trainings Centre Heldenberg or at our stud farm in Piber. There they enjoy their daily excursions in the paddocks and – depending on their individual constitution – are ridden or used for breeding. Our Lipizzaners’ life expectancy is around 30 to 35 years – in comparison to other horses a very high age – which clearly indicates that they receive the best care and are not overstrained in Vienna. The horses’ good constitution is also a result of their late schooling, which enables them to show remarkable performances up to a ripe age in very good health.
