A history of the Spanish Riding School
The Spanish Riding School is the oldest riding school in the world and has hosted the High School of Classical Horsemanship for over 460 years. It is most famous for its Lipizzaner stallions - a cross between Spanish, Arabian and Berber horses - which bring horse enthusiasts to the Spanish Riding School from across the world.
The Spanish Riding School's public performances take place in the Hofburg's Winter Riding School, which was opened in 1735 at the request of Habsburg Emperor Charles VI. The performances play to international audiences in Vienna and the school's leading horses and riders have also toured the world.
Today, the Spanish Riding School is dedicated to the traditional breeding of Lipizzaners and the rearing of prime stallions, as well as preserving the High School of Classical Horsemanship.
