Vienna's Spanish Riding School is the world's oldest and only riding school that cultivates classical equitation. It owes its name to the Spanish horses that formed the foundation of the riding school in its early days.
Emperor Karl VI instructed Josef Emanuel Fischer von Erlach to build the magnificent Winter Riding School in Vienna's Imperial Hofburg Palace from 1729 to 1735. The monarch's portrait still hangs in the white Baroque hall where the riders of the Spanish Riding School train the horses and perform.
The splendid building provides a one-of-a-kind setting for training and presenting the white Lipizzaner stallions.

The goal of the Lipizzan International Federation is to preserve the Lipizzan horse, one of the oldest horse breeds in the world, as purebred baroque horse and cultural heritage. Through international cooperation of Stud Farms, breeding organizations, Universities, with implementation of modern scientific knowledge and exchange of breeding animals, have the population of Lipizzan horses from the foundation of LIF increased from cca 4.000 to more than 10.000 purebred Lipizzan horses.
