What does Granada Hipica entail?

I had to change my dates to Grandad to Aug 17-19 - which I think coincides with Hipica - Horse Week??!!! What exactly is this? I do not really like horses - will the town be overrun? Will there be crowds everywhere? I might have to make Granada a day trip if its super busy and filled with people and horses everywhere!

Thanks for any light you can shed on this event :)

The Hipica is a yearly even about the same time of year and it is part of the local festivities in honor of its patron saint the Assumption Virgen at the Xalteva church. The Hipica is a horse parade, there is normally about 2500 horses that go on a parade that starts at the Baseball stadium and finishes at the Lake this even takes about 3-4 hours, thousands of people will be on the streets showing off thei best outfit for this time of year.

The day of the virgin is the 15 but celebrations will take place with the horses and thousands of people on the 19th, normally this horse parade will take place on the next sunday after the celebration. 17th and 18th will be normal day but with a lot of parties in mayor discos on the 18th
