    What to Expect
    Visit: Spanish Riding School, Michaelerplatz 1 Unter der Michaelerkuppel, Vienna 1010 Austria

    Visit the Spanish Riding School in Vienna in the baroque academy and see how the horses train during their morning exercise. 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 the Riding School do not want to put too much strain on the horses, the classical School Jumps, which are shown during the performances, are not practiced on a daily basis, usually from Tuesday to Friday, accompanied by classical Viennese music.

    Programme will be anytime during 10 to 12 hrs. No fixed programme schedule during the training of the horses. Open seating (seats- and standing room).

    Watching 5 horses walk around with an occasional trot was like watching the grass grow. Seriously? they could surely train with greater enthusiasm given the public has payed good money to watch. However they looked elegant.

    The biggest disappointment of this Vienna trip. I expected it to be horses training, maybe with rehearsals for figures to do during official performances, not five jockeys that go round and round. To be avoided if the training is not reviewed. Better to see the...More

    We left after 40 minutes feeling very disappointed. Our expectations were that we would see more than horses trotting around an area that is visibly hard to see. The most entertaining part was the horses having a poo and someone coming into the arena to...More

    I was there in early March. We bought the ticket on spot after standing a while in the queue. From our experience the training itself becomes boring after 30 minutes....I would recommend the full show or nothing...

    I booked online. Get there early. Sit upstairs first row as the viewing is much better.
