Vienna was my favorite city on this trip. The city has my two favorite things: horses and music.

I used my free time in Vienna to tour the Spanish Riding School. As a dressage rider, I have always been fascinated with the oldest dressage school in the world and two years ago I saw the famous Lipizzans on tour in Washington D.C. The school is located in the beautiful Hofburg Palace and houses over 70 horses. When I was touring the school, I learned about the training and care of the horses.

In Vienna, I also had the opportunity to visit the Haus der Musik. The museum contains exhibits about science and music, famous composers, and even a virtual reality program where one can conduct the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
