The Lipizzaner Museum focuses on the famous white stallions of the Spanische Hofreitschule (Spanish Riding School). A cross-breed of Spanish, Arab and Berber horses, the Lipizzaner were first imported from Spain (hence ‘Spanish’) by Maximilian II in 1562, and in 1580 a stud was established at Lipizza (hence ‘Lipizzaner’), now in Slovenia. Text is in English, but the content is a little thin. Windows allow a view directly into the stallion stables, albeit obscured by thick glass and fine mesh.
