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.

I left in the break. I would have left sooner - but once you are in your seats its difficult to leave without annoying everyone around you. I can safely say that I would never go and see that again. The show I went to see at "Yeguada de la Cartuja" in Jerez was in my opinion a million times... More

I think most of us would be at odds with many of the Spanish sensibilities to animals, but do we travel to judge, or to experience other versions of the world? At the Fundacion Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre, you will witness historic, but somewhat harsh, training techniques. The training results are quite spectacular, but probably one would prefer... More

Having been to the Spanish Riding school in Vienna, I had to come here. I am a fan of dressage and I love to see beautiful horses and good riding skills. I was not disappointed. The location is lovely and a walk around the grounds before the show was not be missed. It was interesting to see two Przewalski's Horses... More

Many of my reporting colleagues herein refer to horse lovers in their titles. While I am sure that horse lovers would particularly enjoy the show and maybe appreciate the technical stuff more, the rest of us who last saw a horse while watching a classic John Wayne movie can appreciate the showmanship as well. The old judge and wife certainly... More

This is a treat for horse lovers like me. The performance is stunning with beautiful horses and amazing riders. The music was a bit off in some acts. The show attracts massive crowds but once inside, it's very civilised. I applaud them for not allowing photos or video which can get so distracting. Good old- fashioned entertainment that you keep...

A great place to visit if you like horses. We opted for seeing the training instead of the show. Fantastic opportunity to see what preparation goes into training horses for performances. A little disorganised at the beginning coming through the gate (however there were 2 tour groups who arrived at the same time). Tour interesting and informative, however difficult to... More

We really enjoyed the show (How the Andalusian horses dance). The horses are magnificent and the riders very skilled. It was truly thrilling to watch them perform to the music and to get a front row perspective of the beautiful, talented horses. It reminded us of being able to see the horses up close in the Kentucky Derby years ago... More

The Spanish Riding school situated in Jerez (home of sherry amongst other good things), is a must. If you are driving, get there early and consider parking in one of the underground carparks in the centre of Jerez. Then walk up to the school, parking round there is a nightmare. A good tip is too book your tickets as far... More

They are paranoid about you taking photos in this place and it is unclear to me why. The museum is OK but not really special and the show is average. The whole place is well maintained and cared for.

If you like horses and the skill of riding and training horses then you'll love this. If you don't have any background in the equestrian world then it may seem just like performing horses. In fact the effort needed to train these horses and the skill required to control and work with them is breathtaking. The auditorium was full however... More
