The High School of classical horsemanship sees the horse as a partner rather than a subordinate, and bases its training on kindness and rewards. The Spanish Riding School in Vienna teaches the final stage in classical horsemanship and breeds small Lipizzaner horses specifically to perform challenging exercises such as dressage and jumps. All the students receive training from experienced riders. The most dedicated candidates aim to perform in public at the School Quadrille, which requires great mental concentration and performance skills as well as the ability to represent the school.
