See a remarkable display of Spanish horsemanship at a 1.5-hour showcase of Andalusian horses, with routines that feature Spanish music and 18th-century costumes. Watch choreographed routines ranging from classical dressage to carriage driving and doma vaquera, which traces its roots to traditional cattle herding techniques. The 1.5-hour ‘How the Andalusian Horses Dance’ show is held at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, in the historic center of Jerez.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art for a 12pm show, and present your voucher for admission. The shows vary with the day, using between six and 8 styles of choreography that features different parts of the Andalusian riding tradition.

See doma vaquera, based on techniques honed by traditional cattle herders, or watch the exquisite precision of classical dressage, as horses execute maneuvers such as “the colts,” “airs on horseback,” “pas de deux,” “passage and piaffer,” and more.

In displays of carriage driving, horses don a classical harness to demonstrate the old fashioned art, and in “work in hand,” the horses follow commands to carry out classical Haute École dressage exercises. And in the co-ordinated carrousel maneuver, horses and riders work together for a grand finale in the center of the arena.

When the 1.5-hour show concludes, you’ll be in the heart of Jerez, close to some of the city’s top historic sites, cafes, and destinations.

Good show of Equestrian Art

If you are in Jerez with time to spare, take in this show. It is somewhat repetitive, but it gives the visitor a view of Andalucian culture. The show is about an hour and a half long, with a 10 minute break at about 50...More

Brilliant !!

We were lucky enough to get two free tickets to a special Saturday morning show. It was a great spectacle and we enjoyed the skills on display very much indeed.

If you love horses, it is a 5, but for me....

Our group went to the show because we had a few people that are horse lovers and we were in Spain! This is a "must do' activity because of the history of these special horses--and they are beautiful. Our group was "mixed" on this activity...More

Tedious and likely cruel to the horses

I left during the interval as I’d had enough of this “entertainment”. Once you’ve seen a few minutes you’ve pretty well seen what happens for the next hour or so. Boring and it leaves you with an uneasy feeling about how they train the horses....More

Amazing Horse Show

Had to book ahead on line to get tickets this a very popular show. Bought tickets with museum admission. Where ever you sit there is a great view of the show. There are large number of coach parties but the school is very well organised....More

We went there by taxi but I guess the closest car parking is the one at Plaza del Marmelón. I also saw a lot of cars parked on the street.

You could get the train from Seville to Jerez. Don’t know how long it takes, we travelled from Cadiz. From the station you’d want a taxi as it would take you about half an hour to walk there. The train service is very good... More
