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.

If you are into horses this place is a must. The show is great. The facilities are unbelievable. However you cannot take photos of the show.

Particularly if you are a horse lover this is a must see on your itinerary. We visited on Monday when there is no show but a training session. It helps to understand what they are doing. The visit to the stables is conducted with a local guide. The museum is fascinating.

What can I say....my wife grew up with and loves horses and these are some of the best trained around....I'm told. The show was a little lacklustre for my taste and a little drawn out for what it was, the music a little overly dramatic also. There's no doubting the skill of the riders and trainers however and the horses... More

Taking photos is not permitted. I could understand no flash, but this is waist of experience. Pictures are good marketing on social media and nice memory for family. Good show, but this ruined it for us.

If you're near Jerez, don't miss seeing this attraction! Andaluzian horses are an important component of the Spanish history and culture We arrived a bit early so were able to walk around the beautiful, well kept grounds while watching riders schooling their mounts. Most of the horses were ridden although several were pulling light carriages. I have horses so was... More

Even if you are not a "horsy" person you'll appreciate the show and, of course, the beauty of those animals. The show was nice but, as a personal opinion, it was a little bit long (90 minutes including a 10 min intermission). If you go in winter, they have a good offer: During the months of January and February, if... More

A wonderful day out. Spent an hour wandering round, watching the horses being exercised and trained, and then 90 minutes in the show arena. The horses dance to their riders' commands. One however, was tethered to a post and danced on his own for 10 minutes. So lovely to see. If you are in Andalucia this is one place you... More

I am no horse enthusiast but can thoroughly recommend the show at the Royal Spanish School of Equestrian Art. The magnificent stallions gracefully dance round the ring to the music, guided by the very able horsemen. You watch them point their toes, kick, flick and prance in a beautifully choreographed show. A very special experience. You can also enjoy exploring... More

I was not able to catch a show due to my travel schedule, but it was well worth the 1-hour bus ride from Seville to spend a some time watching the magnificent horses and riders train. Andalucia was the world's center of equestrian art for centuries and these horses were prized by nobility all over Europe. Seeing these horses and... More
