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.

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

We decided to book the show (is not on every day, so check with your hotel first!) because we had been told that the show was good. And indeed it was, but I guess that horse connoisseurs would appreciate it more than normal people. My son enjoyed the show but I personally thought that it was a bit sad to... More

We caught the noon show and thoroughly enjoyed watching the elegant Arabian horses dance under the direction of their talented riders. Beautiful choreography, very nice grounds and setting.

I thoroughly enjoyed walking around the beautiful grounds, watching the horses practice and then the incredible show. The precision with which the horses move is amazing, Wish photos were allowed so I could share. Well worth a visit.

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.
