Spanish Riding School
Equestrian art goes back to the doctrines of the famous Greek commander Xenophon about 400 B.C. and so does the formation of the rider and the equestrian art at the Spanish Riding School.

Today about 70 school-stallions are held here to present approx. 80 classical performances of the Haute Ecole per year.
