Description: The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art Foundation, in Jerez de la...
The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art Foundation, in Jerez de la Frontera, is famous all over the world for its show called "How the Andalusian Horses Dance", a unique exhibition of horsemanship which both exhibits and summarises the work which the institution has carried out since its establishment. Although the show "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" may be considered the highest attainment of the School's work, there are other aspects which are regarded as equally, or even more important, for the Institution. Among these, we would like to highlight its role as a social and cultural vehicle for our equestrian heritage, the selection and promotion of horses, the training of Haute Ecole riders, the preservation and promotion of Classical and Country Dressage (Doma Vaquera), maintaining the prestige of our horsemanship, the breed of our Spanish horses, our traditions and culture. Furthermore, the show enables the Royal School to play host for the Province of Cadiz and to act as ambassadors abroad on annual tours to various foreign countries. In addition to the show, you might enjoy a visit to our training facilities as well as the Museum of Equestrian Art and the Carriage Museum.

We visited on two separate occasions during our stay near Jerez, one visit for the guided tour of the buildings and grounds, the second for the show. Both days were memorable, would recommend doing both if you have the time, but preferable to do the tour first and the show second. Our tour guide spoke fluent English and was very... More

An excellent display of riding skills and horse training. You are seated in a huge indoor arena and watch a display of immaculately groomed dancing horses ridden by impeccably attired caballeros. There is snacks and drinks available during a ten minute interval and you can sit outside in the lush gardens.The parking isn't great but I suggest round the back... More

Stopped in Cadiz during cruise where we had organised s trip to Jerez to see the horse show. The gardens of the real escuela are stunning and well kept, there are a couple of outdoor paddocks where you can see the horses being trained, the horses we seen were beautiful. The show is inside a beautiful building the seating is... More

Unfortunately i am not, but my wife loves them! Because we were out of season I managed to get tickets at short notice, and we paid a bit more to be in the front row. There are only half a dozen rows, so i dont think it really matters which row you are in. The show was in two sections,... More

I like horses, don't get me wrong, but this show was really not that exciting or overly impressive. The part where the horses walked sideways, held out their feet in front, and kicked out their legs backward was the most interesting, but I often felt that it was a bit sad that these noble beautiful animals were forced to do...

Difficulty finding the correct location online. Parked in the area and several local residents pointed us in the correct direction. Once we arrived, we had to show passports to pick up the tickets that were purchased online since 3 were senior prices. The grounds are expansive. The palace had a few rooms open. We got to watch students practicing riding... More

I went to the horse show with my family yesterday. There was no photography allowed. Im not a horse person and I have very limited knowledge about them, so when the horse walked diagonally and everybody cheered, I had no idea what was going on. Each act was so long and I found my eyelids drooping. The staff were were... More

If you like to watch trained horses and precision riders, this is a very good 2-hour show (including an intermission). The Andalusian horses are beautiful, and the riders display traditional Spanish riding costumes and styles. The entire show probably gets a little long for youngsters, unless they are already in love with horses. If so, leave at the break; it's... More

We had been to see the practice/training session many years ago and now we got to see the real deal. Briefly, these are magnificent animals ridden and handled by some of the most skilled horse people around. Whether you appreciate horses or not, you should see these beautiful athletes perform at a level others can only dream about.

We made a special trip to Jerez for this show, because my wife loves horses. We visited on a sunny day in June. We bought tickets online, arrived about 11:15 AM, and had plenty of time to get a quick snack and watch some practice sessions in two rings. The show happens in a very pretty, roofed building, so the... More
