History: The equestrian culture teaches honor and sacrifice. As a people we are doomed if we prioritize our selfish interest at the expense of the collective good. No one epitomizes this spirit better than legendary Austrian rider and instructor Alois Podhajsky. Alois's passion for horses and the horse riding culture saw him excel as a rider and he eventually rose to become the head of the Spanish riding school in 1939.
During the Second World War, the stallions in his riding school would have been killed were it not for his intervention. He used his friendship with General Patten to secure the placement of the stallions under the American protection. He also helped rescue several stallions that had been captured from the Piber Stud and move them to his homeland in Austria where they would be safe.
This act of selflessness shows that the equestrian culture is built on a foundation of love, sacrifice, and commitment.
