No jodhpurs are required for this guided tour of the Spanish Riding School - just an appreciation of all things historical and horsey in Vienna. Join your equestrian expert guide and explore the Winter Riding School, the Summer Riding School, and the stables.

Saddle up for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Spanish Riding School, a historic institution in Vienna that makes a fascinating detour from the usual sites and galleries.

You'll be led around the Baroque Winter Riding School and the Summer Riding School with a guide, where the school's impressive history will come to life - it was founded way back in 1735.

Witness the grand architecture of this place and gain a better understanding of dressage and the history of the Spanish Riding school.

Step into the stables at the Spanish Riding School - home to the magnificent Lipizzan horses.

This special breed is born to perform the haute école or high school movements of classical dressage which, combined with their stylized jumps, looks a bit like dancing!

Enjoyable experience. Very informative guide. Great "behind the scenes" insight to the Spanish Riding School. Highlight is being up close to these wonderful stallions.

Excellent. We learned the history of the stallions, how they are trained, and how someone becomes a rider. The views of the stables and horses was great. Learned also how the horses turn white.
