It’s just like a fairy tale: The coachman snaps the reins, and the two Lipizzaners find a comfortable trot. My sweetheart and I sit snuggled up together in the elegant carriage as we pass through the idyllic Oberautal valley. The picnic basket we ordered the day before is packed with Champagne, strawberries, and delicious snacks. One of the horses neighs. I am fascinated by these gentle yet mighty animals. I have even already planned my first horse riding lesson. It’s simply wonderful.
