   In 1570, King Philip II, who was a great lover of horses, set out on a scheme to create a pure thoroughbred Spanish horse. He ordered the Royal Stables to be built, where he bred the Spanish horse or Andalusian horse, which was of Arab origin. The main stable room itself, with its vaulted ceiling supported by sandstone pillars is divided into smaller separate areas, known as boxes

Last day in Cordoba out walking and found the Royal Stables. We already had plans for the evening with friends so weren’t able to see the show that night as the timing didn’t quite fit. On sensing our disappointment the young guide said that we could visit the stables and if we were still around in about 30 minutes we... More

You can visit the Royal Stables' carriage collection for free, but if you are a rider/horse-lover then it's worth paying to go into the stable and manege area where you can watch magnificant Andalucian stallions being trained. I just wish I could have stayed for the equestrian school's evening show that combines dressage and flamenco

We were only in Cordoba for a few days and went to buy tickets for that evening's show. However, the show was the night before and we would be leaving before the next one. They advised us that we could go in and watch the horses and riders practicing (there was a small fee) and a little disappointed, we agreed... More

We saw a 12 noon show. The cost was 30 Eros for the double and we walked in off the street to get the tickets. The show lasted 1 hour. It was well worth the money. This is a must see when visiting Cordoba....highly recommend it....

omg the show is one of the best i have ever seen. Get there early as the queues can be bad. I have never seen the discipline of a mixture of barrel racing with a chariot racing made to be exciting and effortless. Then hose rider and what looks like a lance they dance around the Lance -pole seamlessly and... More

A horse show at the Royal Stables is on two evenings a week. A great display of dressage and horsemanship. Flamenco and horses too. A must for horse lovers. The stables are open some mornings for visitors to see training sessions and for a closer encounter with horses.

This was the highlight of my trip to Cordoba this time. I have visited Cordoba on several previous occasions and had always missed this show before with my schedule.

We attended the evening show that offers, among the other sets, the flamenco dancer with a horse rider. The whole gig is well set up and entertaining, although we are not really into horse riding (we followed a friend's advice). The relationship between riders and horses is quite amazing.

I only visited the training. Cost €5. You can visit the empty stables with carriages in on your ticket to the Palace. There are separate tickets for the training which us 11-2. It is high school so lots of in hand leaping & tapping with sticks. Lots of macho men (no women ride) schooling, some with more empathy than others.... More
