Finally, made it here! Very special and interesting. It's rustic and you'll want to get there early for a seat in the shade. Closed end of April so check online.

Training facility for summer shows. Nice event. Horses not up to Vienna standards but it is a training facility. Good to bring house guests. Training was nicely done.
