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.

This was an incredible horse show! It was about 1-1/2 hours long, including an intermission. The horses were stunning and the riders rode with such grace. The performance was in an indoor arena with protection from the heat or rain. This is a spectacle for those of any age, who love horses.

This is a must do in Jerez, in fact we drove from Seville all the way one afternoon just to see this show where Andalucian horses dance (or rather do many coordinated controlled gaits and stunts very gracefully). One can park (secure) in town center and walk down here in 10-15 mins

...to see how these riders control their horses in the most amazing display of dressage I have ever seen. It truly is a spectacular feat of horsemanship. The horses are stunning and it is well worth two hours of your time.

We spent a few hours here with their tour . Then we walked the ground and watched them training the horses. Very informative and interesting.

Even if you don't like horses, you will enjoy the display. High school dressage with a Spanish flavour to celebrate the Andalusian horse. The guided tours enable you to find out more and what goes on behind the scene, However I was privileged to undertake a riding course there. Mind blowing if you into dressage and worth every penny -... More

It was interesting to look around the place and to see how people is practising. I did more expect of the show, the part after the break was great: lots of horses and cariages in the same time. The part before the break was for me so-so.

The trip to Jerez is worth it if just to enjoy the magnificent show and beautiful setting of the Escuela Andaluza. Located not far from the 'Old Town', the 'Escuela' has shows several times a week. It is quite a privilege to sit for an hour an a half watching some of the most beautiful horses in the world ridden... More

This was such fun! The horses performed extremely well - it almost seemed as though they were dancing! There is an intermission, and we thought the show was over at that point as everyone got up to go get something to eat! They do sell a few things to eat there - very few - I would take something to... More

If you travel to Jerez de la Frontera you absolutely must visit this marvellous place. The gardens and buildings were lovely but the horses and their riders were something else. You must book well ahead as we had to purchase VIP seats which were right at the front of the arena but they did include a visit to the stables... More
