One day i WILL go to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Lipizzaner stallions are gorgeous.
Beautiful courbette by this Spanish Riding School Lippizzan stallion.
Some stallions can get along... These particular studs are raised in an environment that encourages them to get along. This is NOT recommended for studs that have grown up differently or have an unknown background. This can be a very dangerous situation. Spanish Riding School Vienna, Lipizzaner horses. -JDK

This is Colonel Alois Podhajsky, Director of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna from 1939 through 1961. With the help of General George Patton and the US Army, he saved the world's oldest classical riding school and the fabulous Lipizzaner horses from destruction in WWII. Besides that noteworthy accomplishment he was one of greatest horseman of all time. I would have loved to have met him, and especially to have seen him ride.
The Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria is the only institution in the world practising the tradition of the haute école since more than 440 year. #feelaustria
