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.

We took a day trip from Seville. We took an early train and then walked (20 minutes) to this place to see the show. The show is great. Horses beautiful and the museum very informative. Arrive early to leave you enough time to enjoy the grounds and museum as they close about 30 minutes after the show.

If you arrive by car, eventually you can find parking, but we seemed to abandon our car in a car park not knowing who owned it or if there was a charge. As it happens, all was fine except for the local relatively harmless con man in a yellow vest who relentlessly told us we should pay him for watching... More

The show was everything I expected, quite quite brilliant. The buildings are beautiful too. Watch the signs on the side roads though. I was sure I was OK but the vague tourist unfriendly sign nowhere near the car meant I was in the wrong place. In fact the parking ticket and tow away were timed within minutes of leaving the...

Absolutely fantastic - discipline - the horses have it in droves. Total of 100 horses in the stables and twenty riders including three lady riders carry out incredible performances to classical music. The most beautiful demonstration of equestrian skill.

The setting is a magnificent arena of raked sand, with seating on three sides. The performance included individual riders, teams of four and eight riders and carriage driving. The horses were beautifully turned out and appeared to enjoy going through the complicated changes of step, direction and pace to which their riders, apparently effortlessly, directed them. The use of stirring... More

My niece and I made a special trip to Jerez to see this show. We weren't diappointed. The horses are excellently trained and seem to enjoy what they do. The riders and their mounts perform in unison and are decked out in their nicest finery. No photos are allowed but you can take some outside in the training area. The... More

The horses and riders put on a spectacular two act show. The horses perform is pairs and in complement of eight. The downside is that they do not allow photography and they tend to police the policy.

These horses are superb animals who actually seem to dance because they enjoy it! The riders give such subtle commands, you barely see them as the horses complete their ballet of many different gaits in tune with the music. It is amazing to see!

We visited on two separate occasions during our stay near Jerez, one visit for the guided tour of the buildings and grounds, the second for the show. Both days were memorable, would recommend doing both if you have the time, but preferable to do the tour first and the show second. Our tour guide spoke fluent English and was very... More
