As very horsey people and having seen the Spanish Riding School performance, behind the scenes tour and exercise to music in Vienna we felt we must finish our few days by hiring a car to go out to the Stud Farm at Piber. I know you shouldn't compare but having visited many stud farms before including the English National Stud... More

We went on a trip from Graz to see the stables where horses are bred and prepared for the Vienna Spanish Riding School. The tour of the facilities was interesting and detailed. Above all, the many horses - stallions, mares and foals - were beautiful to watch. It was an enjoyable and memorable experience.

A visit here will make you aware of the famous Spanish Riding School horses. The tour is extremely informative, as it provides an insight to the breeding, training, lives and retirement of the horses. The tour is all inclusive and guided by extremely knowledgeable people. Also included is a demonstration of an actual training exercise. Well worth it.

After visiting the Spanish Riding School in Vienna to watch the morning exercise and guided tour, I was excited by the brochure advertising the stud in Piber. We had a spare day so we hired a car and drove south to Korflach. The country side was gorgeous and the trip was a nice 2 and a half hour drive. At... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour of the spanish riding school stud farm. We ended having a virtually private tour just myself my partner and my in-laws. The gentleman giving the guided tour was informative and friendly and we got to see the foals and their mothers having their afternoon exercise, a real treat.

A must see if you are in Vienna, and they are in town performing. The music, architecture, baroque riding/dressage, and history all add up to a magical experience.

While staying in Graz we ventured out to the Piber Stud Farm. The drive was fairly short and pleasant. It was not very busy when we arrived and while touring the horse areas we had them mostly to ourselves. The horses, both young and old, were very friendly and seemed eager to interact with us. The buildings were very beautiful... More

After the boss nearly fainted with pleasure at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna 2 years ago, I arranged a visit to Piber near Graz for her birthday - which happened to co-incide with the Herbstparade. We took the train from Vienna and stayed in Koflach for a few days. The event was a combination of top notch and droll.... More

Horses were really beautiful and the place itself was too, however, I find the price too much for what we got to see. there was one cinema, ring where you could watch lessons if you made it in time (we didn't), three barns with six horses each and a barn with foals and foal mares. However, we couldn't touch the... More

We drove from Graz to the farm to see the Lipizzaner horses. This was a nice spring activity, as there were several goals to see, as well as year-long fillies to pet. The Stallions were beautiful and friendly. This was a nice way to see these beautiful animals, but non-horse people may be board.
