Solely Lipizzans are presented at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.
During the reign of the Habsburgs, both nobility and soldiery were interested in a strong but flexible horse breed they could use for their purposes. By the end of the 16th century, archduke Charles II founded a stud in Lipica where horses were bred to develop the breeds that are famous and popular today.
