Agents back in the saddle

TWENTY Australian travel agents had an exclusive tour of the spectacular Spanish Riding School in Vienna while attending the Austria Destination Summit last month. The famed stables for Lipizzaner horses — Europe’s oldest domesticated breed — was one of a string of exclusive experiences the agents enjoyed before setting out on famils among some of Austria’s most scenic regions. Pictured at the riding school are Austrian National Tourist Office Australian director Astrid Mulholland-Licht, ANTO CEO Petra Stolba, Lisa Rose of Zeppelin Travel Gold Coast and Maha Moore of Out and About Travel NSW, with Spanish Riding School director Elisabeth Gurtler.
