SCHEDULE

In the last few years the Spanish Riding School, the Lipizzaner Stud Piber and the Training Centre Heldenberg have continuously extended their touristic program offering a very varied schedule all year round. Beside the regular dates we are pleased to provide special performances as well as exclusive guided tours to the stables and the stud.

 

A TRIBUTE TO VIENNA

The Spanish Riding School with Prof. Günter Seifert, member of the Viennese Philharmonic Orchestra, and eight of his philharmonic colleagues

Let yourself be whisked away on a musical journey back into the Austrian imperial period. Capriole, Levade and Johann Strauß – the performance of A TRIBUTE TO VIENNA will share the highlights of the Viennese ballet of the white stallions alternating with musical presentations of the imperial period. During the performance, the Spanish Riding School presents its most important exercises of the range of the High School in highest elegance and harmony, among others the “Pas de Deux” and the world famous Schools Above the Ground: the Capriole, Levade and Courbette. Professor Günter Seifert, member of the Viennese Philharmonic Orchestra, also presents a typical Viennese repertoire: from the Waltz Song of Johann Strauß Son “Out there in Sievering the lilac is blooming already“, the “Chineser Galop” by Johann Strauß Father, the “Jubelwalzer” by Joseph Lanner to the ”Radetzky March”, one of the most famous marches in the world, which traditionally concludes every new year’s concert and has a highly symbolic meaning for the Austro-Hungarian monarchy.

PERFORMANCE

The Lipizzaners are Europe’s oldest cultural horse breed. They are intelligent and lively horses bred from Spanish, Italian and Arab bloodlines. With their classic physique and grace they are ideally suited for the representative style of the High School of Classical Horsemanship.

Witness the result of years of training of horse and rider in more than 70 classical performances a year in the unique setting of the baroque Winter Riding School. In a performance you get to see horses in various stages of their training, from the young, boisterous colts to the fully trained School stallions, which enchant the audience with their performance in the School Quadrille, the Schools on and above the Ground as well as in Work on the Long Rein.

PIBER MEETS VIENNA

The Spanish Riding School and its Lipizzan horses are famous and loved all over the world – but not everyone is familiar with where these noble horses come from and what they do before their training and performances in Vienna. Our summer program “Piber meets Vienna”, which takes place during the well-earned “summer break” of our stallions, offers an insight into life at the stud. You will see the Lipizzans mares with their adorable foals and learn

lots of interesting facts about the breeding and rearing of our white stars!

MORNING EXERCISE

Training of the Lipizzaner Stallions

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. Through the specific strengthening and building up of the muscles, the horses’ natural movements are developed into the perfect figures of the High School of classical Horsemanship. As we do not want to put too much strain on the horses, the classical School Jumps, which are shown during the performances, are not practised on a daily basis.

Ticket reservations are not accepted for the Morning Exercises with music. Children under the age of 3 are not allowed to attend Morning Exercise. Taking pictures and filming is not permitted. Schedule may be subject to change.
