Synopsis

The Lipizzan horses perform an equine ballet at the palatial Winter Riding School in Vienna. The elaborate dressage displays are accompanied by classical Viennese music.

Elegantly dressed, the riders are turned out in the same outfits that their predecessors have worn for 200 years: brown coat, white buckskin breeches, high boots, and the traditional bicorne hat.

The Lipizzaner demonstrate different classical jumps and moves in the School Quadrille, in the Schools on and above the ground and on the Long Rein.
The quadrille is the spectacular end of the program in which eight riders work in formation at the walk, trot, and canter, with flying changes, pirouettes, the half pass and the passage.

The School Quadrille of the Spanish Riding School lasts twenty minutes and is considered the longest and most difficult in the world.
Apparently effortless, it takes years of intensive training to arrive at this level of expertise.
