Owner description: 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.

“Must see spectacle”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

If you are going to see the show, go in plenty of time as there is lots to see in the practice and training areas and the museum. The show itself is wonderful with precision, skill and excitement and the display arena is light and airy. There are also a couple of cafe bars so you can have a drink as well. More to this than their web site suggests. They might like to improve the web site.

“Dancing Horses”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We went to the show on the last night of the Feria. I had booked the tickets well in advance, as when we were in Jerez before we could not get into the show. It was well worth seeing and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The horses are beautiful.

“Worth seeing”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

The main show starts at noon but I recommend to arrive early to take the time to stroll around the ground and explore the museum and workshop. There's not enough time left after the show before ground closes. The main show is impressive. I am from Vienna, which also has a Spanish Horse Riding School, but have never seen that. I image it's very similar to this and will make plans to also visit there. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful attraction”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

The museum was really interesting & it was wonderful to see the beautiful horses training, unfortunately we were not there on Tuesdays or Thursdays so did not get to see the show ... we will have to come back, would love to have experienced that. We were very short of time as we didn't get there until 12.00 & the training finishes at 1.00 and the museum closes at 2pm ... so get there early!!
