This is the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.
I went there in July 2011 with my partner during our Europe trip. We had gotten hopelessly lost on our way to see the School and then suddenly, we turned a corner and there it was. Standing majestically in front of us. And I started bawling. I’m crying as I type this too. Because the Spanish Riding School represents so much for me as a dressage rider. It is our history, our roots. It is a monument to our sport. And I was overcome with emotion when I saw it.
Please note, it was under construction when we were there. I’m going to post some more photos of the tour we took though!
