Vienna's Spanish Riding School is the world's oldest and only riding school that cultivates classical equitation. It owes its name to the Spanish horses that formed the foundation of the riding school in its early days. Emperor Karl VI instructed Josef Emanuel Fischer von Erlach to build the magnificent Winter Riding School in Vienna's Imperial Hofburg Palace from 1729 to 1735. The monarch's portrait still hangs in the white Baroque hall where the riders of the Spanish Riding School train the horses and perform. The splendid building provides a one-of-a-kind setting for training and presenting the white Lipizzaner stallions.
