The Spanish Riding School in Vienna celebrates its 450th anniversary in the year 2015, heralding a rich and celebrated past devoted to the cultivation of classical equitation in the Renaissance tradition of the Haute Ecole ("High School") on its beautiful Lipizzaner stallions. Here is a book that honors both the Riding School and its marvelous horses—a retrospective that delights in the whole story, from foals cavorting with their mothers in the fields of Piber to the cadets in training and the teaching of the famous figures and jumps. Filled cover to cover with fabulous, emotionally charged color photographs, and including both English and German translations, this is a book for anyone who has ever delighted in the mystique of the White Stallions of Vienna—who wanted to know more, see more, and revel fully in their magic.
