Very informative and got to see inside where horses are exercised, what they are fed and meet them. Could ask lots of questions too, but weren't allowed to take photos of horses as this can be stressful for them.

Better than I expected. We could get close to the horses in their stables and learned a lot about how the school is run. Incidentally, the cafe is a quiet corner in crowded Vienna!
