The Spanish Riding School - Tradition of Pure Elegance
Die spanische Hofreitschule - Eleganz mit Tradition
Whether it´s the excitement of a performance in Vienna's majestic Riding Hall, the birth of a foal in Piber, or the experience of seeing the exhausting day-to-day life of stable work - the fascinating documentary «Spanish Riding School - Tradition of Pure Elegance» gives an exclusive insight into the development of the «Spanish Riding School» over the last centuries. The camera accompanies the horse whisperers to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, the Styrian stud in Piber and to the Lower-Austrian summercamp Heldenberg and takes a look at their daily work. The result is a highly multi-facetted film, which reveals the secrets of the breeding and the extraordinary training of the Lipizzan horses.
