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.

Andalusian horses are awesome creatures and they truly show their skills at the Real Escuela Ecuestre. The site is beautiful, clean, classy, manicured, and you feel a sense of deep connection between the horses and their trainers. There was no show in the indoor arena on the day that we went (check the internet to see on what days there... More

... and probably the last. We went because we thought we'd like to see the spectacularly trained horses but gradually felt more and more uncomfortable with it. True, this is a tight and well planned event but not sure I'm altogether relaxed at the stunts the individual horses have to perform. The carriage driving was amazing and reflected the skill...

Arrived on a non show day but paid a small entrance fee to look around. All very interesting watching the horses being trained and put though their paces. Beautiful grounds and house. Just a short walk from Hotel Villa Jerez.

this is a serious school of classic baroque high school riding but don't be turned off if you are not big into this serious side. The show put on by the students and teachers is world class and fascinating to see the fine old tradition translated into a modern world. The grounds and house are beautiful with an excellent museum... More

What an experience, I so loved visiting the Andalucian School of equestrian art. From the moment you enter the gates you are transported into another world: beautiful, serene, tranquil, historic, somewhere steeped in tradition. The show was outstanding, I was in awe at the expertise of the riders & the highly trained precision of the magnificent horses. Leave ample time... More

The dressage exhibition was very well done. The horses performed Grand Prix dressage moves with skill. Go early to see horses being trained and exercised in the outdoor arena. Be warned that the show arena could be very cool.

When in Jerez, it seemed a reasonable thing to do. Perhaps I'm a sceptic, but there are only so many dancing horses that one can take, and after the first hour, we skipped out at the break. The show is not cheap, and I resent the having to buy a program, along with the Disneyland merchandising opportunities being pushed. We... More

This was the highlight of our holiday these horses and their riders were stupendous the choreography and the presicion was perfect.

It is amazing how these horses have been trained. If you are a horse enthusiast this show is not to be missed. Book early as this show is held like twice a week only. Its about an hour and half show. Worth the vist
