Spanish Riding School, {CATEGORY}

Few other rituals are as evocative of the power and majesty of the 18th-century Habsburg Empire as the Spanish Riding School, whose horse-breeding savvy was once firmly entrenched as part of the military bedrock of Europe. It's headquartered within an opulent and baroque section of the enormous Hofburg Palace, in the section closest to the photogenic Michaelerplatz. During their twice-per-week performances, as many as 25 Lipizzaner stallions trot and prance as part of stylized dressage routines, weaving in and out of complicated formations, sometimes between or around barriers. Their riders and trainers are outfitted in rakish 18th-century uniforms, the kind that once made ladies of the court (and leaders of lesser calvaries in other parts of Europe) tremble. Many aspects of the show haven't changed very much in 400 years, except that some kind of recorded music now accompanies the show - invariably a polonaise or a waltz by Chopin or one of the Strausses. Some aspects of the performances almost attain the surreal. One example involves massive crystal chandeliers poised in midair above the muck and grime of the dressage ring. At regular intervals, the chandeliers are lowered on their chains to positions just above the sand and mud for meticulous cleanings. The easiest way to guarantee a seat at one of these performances involves pre-payment through the Internet several weeks in advance. Except for midsummer, when the horses are taken to pastures in the Austrian countryside, "regular" performances are conducted every Sunday as well as either Friday or Saturday, depending on a complicated series of factors having to do with the well-being of the horses. Depending on what's being emphasized that particular week, performances last from 80 to 100 minutes each, with tickets for seats selling for between 40€ and 135€ ($64-$216). Standing room high in the bleachers sells for between 20€ and 25€ ($32-$40) per person. During July and August, performances are abbreviated, not particularly flashy 60-minute routines without a lot of emphasis on the high-stepping dressage for which the Lipizzaner breed is famous. Summer performances showcase relatively docile mares and foals, and not the high-tempered stallions that are showcased during the more elaborate winter performances. Seats for summer performances cost from 13€ to 26€ ($21-$42) each, with standing room priced at 9€ ($14) per person. You might get lucky and manage to pick up a ticket just before any given performance, or perhaps the well-connected concierge at an upscale Viennese hotel might be able to do it for you. However, we firmly recommend that you arrange for tickets, in advance of your arrival in Austria, through the Reitschule's Internet site or its email facilities.
