*****

MORNING EXERCISE WITH GUIDED TOUR
Come and experience the Morning Exercise performed to music!

The Morning Exercise offers an insight into the years of training of the Lipizzaners and their riders. Accompanied by classical Viennese music the riders and their horses do simple relaxing exercises and exercises aimed at refining and perfecting a certain movement. Each rider is personally responsible for the training of the stallion entrusted into his care. Through the specific strengthening and building up of the muscles, the horses’ natural movements are developed into the perfect figures of the “High School”.

As we do not want to put too much strain on the horses, the classical School jumps Levade, Courbette and Capriole, which are shown during the performances, are not practised on a daily basis.

Guided Tour:
A unique tour of the Spanish Riding School takes you to the different stations which account for the special charm of this institution. The Winter Riding School, a gem of baroque architecture; the Summer Riding School, one of the quietest and unexpected places in Vienna; the Stallburg, Vienna' s most significant Renaissance building; and the stables of the Lipizzaners.

Morning Exercises: 10:00 - 12:00, Guided Tour: in the afternoon, Language: english
