Our Stanglwirt riding school
Horse-lovers can enjoy a very special experience at the Stanglwirt riding school. At Austria's first private Lipizzaner stud, there are 24 wonderful Lipizzaner horses, which you are welcome to take out on a ride. The Lipizzaner stud that has been based at the Stanglwirt since 1985 is well-known far beyond Austria and offers you a unique way of advancing your equestrian trainingon a pure-bred "horse of royalty".
Our noble Lipizzaner stud is Elisabeth Hauser's favourite hobby. The horse-loving youngest daughter of the hotel's owners runs the Lipizzaner stud and riding school at the Stanglwirt with great enthusiasm. She is ably assisted by her trained team under Lisa Frimberger. Enjoy all the fine features and special characteristics of the Austrian horse of royalty in first-class lessons tailored to the needs of rider and horse alike.
