Kobilarna Lipica (Lipica Stud Farm)

Kobilarna Lipica (Lipica Stud Farm) Review

The Kobilarna Lipica was founded in 1580 by the Austrian archduke Karl II. It's where the white Lipizzaners—the majestic horses of the famed Spanish Riding School in Vienna—originated. Today the farm no longer sends its horses to Vienna, but breeds them for its own performances and riding instruction. The impressive stables and grounds are open to the public. Riding classes are available, but lessons are geared toward experienced riders and must be booked in advance.
