Sculpture at Piber Castle, Austria

In 2003 this palace housed the Styrian State exhibition ‘Mythos Pferd’. This exposition told about the history of horses. During this time, the sculpture of a black horse served as a promotion for the event.

Would you love to see more of the famous Lipizzan stallions? Feel free to drive up to a nearby pasture which is the home of the young stallions during summertime.
