Adopting at Spanish Riding School - Lipizzaner Stud Piber

Lipizzaners are Europe’s oldest domesticated horse breed. The tradition of their breeding goes back to the year 1580, the history of their education even to Ancient Greece. Since 1920, the noble horses are bred in the Federal Stud Piber in Styria, Austria. Each year, the riders and chief riders muster the young stallions and select the best to be trained in the High School of Riding at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.

What is an adoption?

Adopting a horse means paying a certain annual amount, earmarked for a specific project, for a foal or a school stallion of the Spanish Riding School. We offer two models: private adoption or company adoption for a foal in the Federal Stud Piber or a stallion of the Spanish Riding School.

The donations are specifically employed to maintain the high breeding standards and the professional care of the horses.
