Piber houses the stud farm for the Spanish Riding School horses. When the town of Lipizza was incorporated into Slovenia after World War I, it was in a former castle in Piber, a small Styrian village, that the famous Lippizaner horses found a new home. The horses are a complex mixture of six different breeds. Born dark-chestnut or black, they acquire their famous white colour between the ages of four and ten. In Piber the initial selection of 5 out of 40 stallions takes place: they are assessed for their suitability and stage talents before five years of training at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. You can visit the stables here, and watch a film on the history of the stud.
