Into the war-torn city of Vienna in 1945 comes young Franz Hofer of the Tyrol, on an almost hopeless search for his parents, seized by Hitler's secret police. Here he finds his cousin Willi -- and an amazing adventure. For Willi is a stableboy at the renowned Spanish Riding School, last center of the art of classical riding; and when Franz too is hired as a stableboy, he becomes involved in the fate of the eighty beautiful Lipizzan stallions: Emperor Franz Josef's white horses, whose blood lines trace back to the time of Caesar.
