Owner description: 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 were there for the training rather than a show. The training was interesting to watch, the riders obviously very experienced. The guided tour provided more context. The tour leader almost left a number of her charges behind and was initially a little impatient, when asked questions. Parts of the museum were well laid out - other sections were rather... More

More than we had expected, great to wander round the grounds and see the horse and riders working, breaking and riding in the sand school. Wonderful museum, expertly produced and worth the visit. The spectacular was a great spectacle indeed, fabulous Andalusian horses expertly ridden and worked, a great show of man working with horse. A must for horse lovers

I took the train from Seville and walked to the arena which took me about half an hour and two rescues from lovely locals. A few more street signs would be good! The horses are beautiful and in wonderful condition. Before the show you can see them warming up and doing some training. Take pictures here because you can't inside... More

We went here with a group. So it wasn't really my pick, but I was interested nonetheless. We didn't get to see the actual show, but got to watch them practice. The horses and riders are clearly very talented. There's also quite a bit to see with regards to the stables and tack room and such. Beware that you can't... More

I might seem a bit expensive (27€ for the best seats) but it definitely worths it. I am not a horse lover but I have been impressed by the show. If you come to Jerez, it is definitely a place to go !

Visit the web page: http://www.realescuela.org/es/exhibiciones.cfm, FOR DETAILS ON THE HORSE SHOW. It is excellent. The horsemen do very complicated movements with their great andalusian horses. You dont have to be a horse lover to enjoy this show. Very well organized and a good exhibition. You can only do two things in this Spanish city. Go to the sherry distillery or... More

Absolutely unique chance to see a show of beautiful horses trained to the highest standards by their trainers. The claim is that horses dance and certainly the mixture of movement and music is highly skillful and exciting. Basically it could be called extreme dressage but the show is spectacular enough to entertain those who simply want a good show. What... More

I'm not a particular horse show fan but i did enjoy this performance. The moves by the horses were impressive and the music was an excellent match. I thought the logistics were well organized. Pictures are not allowed inside. Contrary to other comments, the day I was there the attendants were constantly looking for photographers and promptly warned any they... More

This is one of the main attractions in Jerez de la Frontera, and is worth the hype. The horses actually dance, and it is quite amazing to watch. I recommend that you get your tickets before you go, to avoid any angst when you get there. It is an easy taxi ride from the train station, and there are sherry... More

I traveled back to the US on Holland America's Nieuw Amsterdam. I saw this horse show as part of a ship's tour that also went to Tio Pepe, the sherry company. There was enough time to watch the horse being ridden in the outside arena before the show. No photos are allowed inside during the show, so photos outside are... More
