The stallions were not in residence so went to morning exercise. Tickets were easy to purchase at the ticket office. My wife like this better because they brought out mates and babies. Well worth the 17 euros.

This place is only recommended if you like old school circuses that is an arena with many horses running and two humans forcing commands on them. I left after 8 minutes.

We saw Piber meets Vienna and it was worth it. In our age of thrill-a-minute, flash-bang, laser-light shows, it was actually nice to see a more sedate, old-fashioned show rooted in a long history. The mares and fillies were the highlight. Check out YouTube for...More

So I understand that the horses need a rest from their winter scheduled performances and for the summer there is the alternative “Piber meets Vienna” but this is just a bunch of mares and fillies galloping everywhere
