We visited during the Patio Festival, and saw the horses being exercised. The old Royal stables are fascinating and there are many old carriages to view.

The Caballerizas Reales de Cordoba (Royal Stables) are easy to find as they are on the same street as The Alcazar. The stables are free to visit & definitely worth a viewing (check times on the website www.cordobaecuestre.com). There is a performance on Wed, Fri & Sat at 21:00 or Sunday 12:00 (check website for entry fee), however, due to... More

I went with my husband who hasn't the remotest of interest in horses and he just loved it. I've never been to a show of this kind before but found the whole scene very moving especially when put to music. The control they have over their horses is incredible. They're such well muscled compact, yet tall horses. I'd just love... More

If you like horses, you will love this show! The horses are incredible. To watch them do very difficult moves which are not natural for them, is incredible. I thought the show was nicely done, although the narration is entirely in Spanish. I disagree with the comments about the flamenco dancers - they aren’t there to do Flamenco dancing. They... More

When I tried to write a review about this show after I saw it in April 2012, Tripadvisor did not have it in its system. I like to think that my message helped to locate it; in any case it is good to see that many visitors have expressed their opinion on it since. Admittedly no coinnaisseur, I really enjoyed... More

This horse show is not on the same scale as the Jerez one but does have the added attraction of the flamenco dancer dancing with the horse. The show only lasts an hour (long enough if you've no great interest in horses) and is reasonably priced.

I'm a massive horse lover, but even I felt that it was overpriced for what we got. For euro15 per person we got a 60 minute show, none of which was explained in English. The horses themselves were okay, but I have seen better. If you're not a horsey person, probably better to give it a miss.

Loved everything about it! Thought it was going to be a bit "hokey" but it displayed Spanish horsemen and their glorious mounts extremely well.

This was a suggestion from our hotel. Beautiful horses and the horsemanship displayed by the riders was fantastic. A part of Spanish culture and heritage which you need to see to appreciate.

Very talented horsemen presenting sophisticated riding. Horses and flamenco dancer did a great work. Lovely atmosphere in the royal stables. I recommend this as a Must See in Cordoba.
