    Default Spanish Riding School Videos

    Not sure if these have been posted here before:

    Part 1

    Part 2

    I don't know when these films were made, but is that possibly a young Artur Kottas at the long reins?

    These are from the IMAX movie "The Majestic White Stallions" which I believe came out in 2001.

    The long rein performance was done by Andreas Hausberger and Conversano Isabella. You can see Kottas throughout the movie and he definitely has gray hair. I think he retired a year after the film came out.

    Thanks for the heads up. My monitor (and my eyesight) are suffering the ravages of time. I did some further research and that DVD appears to be available in the US from the Lipizzan Association of North America.

    The two SRS videos I have are VHS format and I think from about 20 and 30 years ago respectively. There was also a film "Symphony In White" that aired on A&E Network back in the early 90's but got caught up in a copyright kerfuffle. Hopefully it's sitting in a temperature-controlled vault somewhere, because it was very well done.
