Meet Rider Herwig Radnetter
As if he wasn't a great rider, Herwig is a great translator, as well. He speaks perfect English and is a friendly ambassador for the Spanish Riding School on the tour. Perhaps the fact that his father is an American helped? He seems very at home in America!
Herwig started at the Spanish Riding School as a very young rider in 1976. He became a cadet in 1982 and progressed to full rider in 1988. He appeared with the Spanish Riding School in the United States in 1990 in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., New York and Boston.
His involvement with the Spanish Riding School for over the past 28 years has included training a number of different Lipizzaner horses and presenting them in performance, including the Lipizzaner stallion from Piber called "Conversano Mantua".
Herwig is married to Nicole, his wife since February 2002, and they have one daughter named Kea. His parents both live in Austria.
