A top-class team has formed to honour the Spanish Riding School in Vienna and the Piber Federal Stud with a sumptuous volume on the occasion of their anniversary: Elisabeth Gürtler, Director of the Spanish Riding School, presents the excellence and the unique character of this institution and its rich tradition. The internationally reknowned photographer René van Bakel has captured the Lipizzaners through the years from birth to their demanding training and the glamourous performances. Sports journalist and horse enthusiast Arnim Basche interweaves expert knowledge and emotion in his texts. And multi-award-winning publisher Edition Lammerhuber – elected Photography Book Publisher of the Year 2014 – provides the elegant design for the book to match both the theme and the occasion.
450 Jahre Spanische Hofreitschule – 450 Years Spanish Riding School is the only authorized anniversary volume on 450 years of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.
