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.

This is a must if you are in Jerez. Although you cannot take photos when the show is in progress it is understandable as the flashes affect the horses and riders. Watching the horses do their dancing routines almost brought tears to my eyes. Splendid.

I booked this from home quite a while before travelling - I would have liked to pay for the show but knew my husband would be bored so just went for the tour and watch the training. We got there reasonably early so had plenty of time to watch the horses practice - there was plenty to see, carriages with... More

Really a spectacular show and am glad we went despite my concerns over how the horses are treated - I mean, is walking diagonally really what comes naturally to a horse? They work the horses pretty hard, for sure, but you could eat off the floor of the stables and the horses are clearly very well taken care of. I... More

A second visit after enjoying it so much first time but maybe that's why we didn't feel it lived up to expectations. Hard to describe amazing horsemanship as a little boring but that's how it seemed. It lacked some atmosphere. The arena was really cold despite sunshine outside so make sure you wrap up warm with gloves scarf and boots.... More

We did this as part of a Viator Tour - Sherry Tasting, Andalusian Horse Show, Tavira Tower, & Cadiz Ferry Ride. This was a fun glimpse into a special part of Andalusian culture. What a unique stop! If you have the time, it’s a neat activity and appropriate for all ages. I'm not sure how expensive it is alone, but... More

Must see if you are a fan of horses and horsemanship. Pay a little extra and get the VIP ticket. It gives you access to the horses and stables. The Dressage Show is fantastic and worth the trip.

The hour and a half show goes for less than an hour when the long intermission and lengthy introductions are taken into account. Horribly overpriced. My wife a horse lover had always wanted to go here but found the whole show underwhelming and monotonous. Neither the horses or the riders looked like they were enjoying themselves.

I'm partial, being a horse person, but this was by far the best reason to come to Jerez. Even my non-horse husband enjoyed it. Go early and purchase the tour tickets to go to the stable and watch the horses be brought out and brushed down for the noon show. The tour also has a fascinating carriage and tack area... More

There is a ban on photography inside the show ring so if you want to take your own record you are dependant on horses and/or carriages in the practise ring outside. We thought that the first half was going to be 'the Department of silly walks' but the carriage driving and the precision riding that built to a climax was... More
