The Spanish Riding School of Vienna is bringing its famous white Lipizzaner stallions to London. The scholars of the Winter Riding School, based in the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, will be giving three performances at the Wembley Arena in November.

The highly trained horses and riders will display classical riding in the Renaissance tradition of the haute école in a performance called The Imperial Dream. In keeping with their Austrian heritage the riders and the Lipizzaner horses will perform to live orchestral music.

Team GB Olympic dressage competitors Lee Pearson (Paralympics) and Carl Hester will open the show with a specially choreographed routine.

The Imperial Dream by the Spanish Riding School is at Wembley Arena on 25 and 26 November at 8pm, and 27 November at 3pm. Tickets £65, £55, £35 and £25.
