Overview
More
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.

Can't visit Jerez without coming to see the horses. Good show which I enjoyed. Pity we weren't allowed to take pictures. Very graceful and understated. I booked tickets ahead online but wasn't offered museum or carriage tickets or written guide which would have improved the...More

Brilliant show of horsemanship and well trained horses. The show lasts just under one and a half hours with a 10mins interval. The indoor arena is hot and humid, so bring water and a fan! Definitely a must see if in Jerez. There is a...More

Plan your trip around being in Jerez Tuesday or Thursdays for the Equestrian show... check their schedule and grab tickets. It is incredible. Failing that, just go to the school and catch a practice. Wander around and look at all the handsome Spanish men in...More

We booked last minute, late the night before, and had an enjoyable visit. We only booked for the show, so were allowed to walk around the grounds, but could not visit the on-site museum without an additional ticket. Apparently there is another museum further along...More

We took a day trip and hit the highlights in town. The horse show is mentioned in most of the tourist info. To our surprise, it is the best part of the trip.

A lovely choreographed routine. There followed two carriages filled the same ladies and their frothy dresses. Pulled by a team of...More

There was a cafe in the arena when we visited in March. Sandwiches, baquetes and small tapas with drinks offered. We came 1 hour before the show and it was open.
