Good News from Vienna: Spanish Riding School Stables Are Open Again

Perhaps you read the article I wrote in the June issue of EQUUS about the outbreak of Contagious Equine Metritis (CEM) at the Spanish Riding School stables and farm in Austria.

I learned today that the quarantine has ended. Most of the stallions are on summer vacation but there are seven in residence in Vienna if you are in the neighborhood and would like to stop by. You can also visit the hallowed temple of dressagedom, the Winter Riding School, which was built in the early 18th century.

Welcome back to the Lipizzaners! They won’t get too comfortable, though; this fall they will visit Holland, France and Belgium for special performances. They are planning a tour of western USA cities in the fall of 2008. They visited eastern and central US cities in 2005 and EquiSearch.com hosted their tour blog.
