This little video pretty much personifies the way I felt when, after a lifetime of yearning, I finally set foot inside Vienna’s Winter Riding Hall. I am sure I was giggling just like the girls in the video.
Not a word is spoken in this one-minute commercial for Europe’s horsiest tourist destination. Enjoy some very elegant footage and rare closeups of the dashing Oberbereiters (“head riders”) Hans Riegler and Klaus Kriszch. It was filmed on location in the stable, saddle room and riding hall that I remember so well.
If you ever have a chance to go to the Riding School in Vienna: do! This is the real thing, and it will be an unforgettable experience.
