Spanish Riding School

The world-famous Spanish Riding School is the training ground for riders and their Lipizzan horses - Europe's oldest breed of horse. It's located between Michaelerplatz and Josefsplatz inside the Hofburg, in central Vienna. The 'Spanish' in the title refers to the Spanish heritage of the horses.

This beautiful building has been an equestrian training center for more than 450 years. Guests can enter and watch these amazing horses learn the ropes and reins, in preparation for their performances in the Winter Riding School (Winterreitschule) in the Hofburg.

Spanish Riding School - Morning Training
Interesting to see the horses and riders. It is purely morning exercisecand you do not see any of the manouvers or movements of the shows. Gets busy to start with, then people start to leave after the first hour. There are 4 x 30m sessions.

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it was somewhat interesting. Part of the challenge with Vienna is that is overwhelming with so much to do. If you are a horse person it is an absolute if not I would weigh other opportunities.

Good to not have to queue, though you need to exchange your booking for a proper ticket. Recommend you aim to stay for at least 90 mins to see several of the 30 minute training sessions. By doing this you will probably see all the different manoeuvres with the music.

Beautiful horses but would have liked to see more dressage it was repeated twice in an hour. Enjoyed the commentary and short film.

Spanish Riding School - Morning Training
The morning training had me spellbound. So much so that I went to the afternoon guided tour as well. A most enjoyable and interesting day.

Spanish Riding School - Morning Training
Didn't expect to only see the horses trotting (could have watched horses in a field ) one rider even yawning obviously bored and many spectators leaving. Whilst queuing the video showed the horses doing many sequences, nothing was done, the highlight was one horse going on its hind legs which was lovely but 5mins of a 2 hour show.
