The world-famous Spanish Riding School uses highly trained Lippizan stallions in public performances that demonstrate classical dressage movements and training. During summer there is another chance to take a glimpse of the these precious horses.

Every July mare Lippizan horses along with their offspring are brought from Piper to Vienna to familiarize the foals with their later domain in Vienna’s Spanish Riding School.

For one hour every day the horses are allowed to graze in Vienna’s Castle Garden next to the former imperial palace making it a beloved attraction for both, tourists and inhabitants likewise.
