Classical Horsemanship and the High School of the Spanish Riding School Vienna

Language: English

Classical horsemanship at the Spanish Riding School Vienna is the traditional art and practice of breeding, keeping, training and riding Lipizzaner horses. The School's social practices, ceremonies and rituals are based on the long-lasting relationships between breeders, grooms, craftspeople, riders and horses. Knowledge of horse husbandry and use of equipment is transmitted to cadets by grooms and experienced riders. The tradition gives communities within the School a sense of identity and ensures the safeguarding of techniques on horse husbandry.
