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 were excited to watch this show but we were a little disappointed as it is very slow and the music can lull you to sleep. Great riding but we expected something more lively.

After seeing various YouTube clips and reading numerous blogs, we decided to include an Andalusian Horse Show as part of our tour of the Seville area. The pageantry and magic of these Spanish horses and their riders, dancing to music of the area, was amazing and well worth the trip. The costumes and fittings added to the cultural experience. The...

Stunning Spanish horses dancing to the tune of a classic/Spanish guitar and similar music. Allow time for a visit to the beautiful complex ahead of the show - 12pm start. And you need to book online well ahead (2 weeks min.)

Very skilful and some impressive manoeuvres, but a bit of a slog if you are not fussed about horses, even beautiful ones. Kids left slightly baffled. Wife concerned by what the horses had been trained to do, walking on hind legs etc

We booked this as a present for our daughter´s 13th Birthday. She is horse mad - we are not - but we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The tickets for the show allow you access to the grounds 2 hours beforehand but although it is worth looking around the facilities you don´t need 2 hours to do it and you cannot... More

This is well worth a visit. The horse displays both individually and then with carriages is fantastic. The time goes by very quickly. You can also view the school and the beautiful gardens . The only problem is you need to check out the days and the times of your visit . The shows are only on certain days and... More

Now having been to both, I prefer the Andalusian show. First it is cheaper. Second, the grounds are park like with a museum, shops, etc. The horses themselves are fantastic and the riders so very accomplished. The venue/arena is more spectator friendly than Vienna's I believe. And it was within walking distance of our hotel. Downside, like in Vienna, tickets... More

You will find a number of detailed reviews below, but in short: regardless of whether you are a horse fan or not, these horses and their riders are extremely good. If you are not a huge horse fan you may want to avoid the VIP tickets at €50 - but if you are a fan please go ahead as they... More
