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. « less

We went to the show on my Birthday the 16th October. WOW, what a special day. We did the palace, museum, tack room and training ground before the show. This was amazing. At 12 O'clock we entered the show, which was over an hour and a half long, packed with pomp and ceremony, bright colours and wonderful Spanish music. The... More

I remember the television advertisement for Spain as a child. This included the dancing horses and sherry of Jerez. So on a visit to this city, the equestrian school was an essential. The school offers different attractions on different days. They don't have a horse show every day so please check on their website so that you can plan your... More

I would say is a must when in Jerez. Great show, beautiful horses, everything is well organised. I bought my tickets online a couple of months before visiting and got great seats. The place doesn't have a coffee shop, would be nice if they had one. The gardens are pretty, get there at least 15 minutes before the show tontake... More

We stumbled upon this and now consider it the number 1 attraction in Jerez. Visit both museums and view the show - you'll be very pleased with all three.

Be sure you attend a performance at this riding school because It is amasing. The precise movements of the horses and co-ordinated prancing of several horses at once is truly amazing. You will surely enjoy it as we did. I am pleased to recommend this very interesting attraction to you.

What an astounding animal, the Carthujian horses. Although we were not there for a show, we were able to see the horses up close in the stables and watched several of the training sessions. These horses are especially bred and show an amazing ability for dancing, side stepping, jumping and showmanship. The school is very highly renowned world wide and... More

You can take a horse to water but you can't make it drink. Wonderful chemistry between horse and rider. A joy to watch

Beautiful horses who have been very well trained to perform. Personally I found some of the moves looked unnatural for a horse and found that part of the show a little uncomfortable
