Full description
Marvel at the equestrian skills of Spanish horses and riders at a unique "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" ballet at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez de la Frontera. Accompanied by quintessential Spanish music and 18th-century style costumes, the choreography uses movements based on classical dressage, Doma Vaquera, and traditional equestrian chores. The horses carry out advanced exercises to classical music. Each show consists of 6-8 different choreographies such as "The Colts," Airs on Horseback," Pas de Deux," Passage and Piaffer," "Domino on Horseback," Airs Above the Ground" and "Fantasy." See the horses demonstrate their ability to draw carriages which were originally used for transport, but are now used for sport and exhibitions, using classical harnesses and driven by coachmen who dexterously demonstrate their skills. See classical "Haute École" dressage exercises, such as levades, caprioles, courbettes, piaffe (between pillars), and the Spanish walk. Watch the group of horses and riders perform advanced equestrian exercises in unison, providing a fitting end to the performance. The entrance into the premises is through the Visitor Reception Centre, where you will find a digital cinema where you can see a spectacular audio-visual presentation of the history of equestrian art in Andalusia, until 11:00 AM. This area leads into the gardens, which contain a great variety of exotic plants. The Palace itself rises majestically above the gardens and is a beautiful example of 19th Century architecture.  In the basement, find the Museum of Equestrian Art, which consists of 11 rooms where you will discover the origins and history of equestrian art and the horse in Andalusia. Admire the Saddlery, the place where the harnesses are made and repaired. The Carriage Museum marks the end of your journey where you will see harnesses and equestrian costumes.

    A once in a lifetime event. Fabulous setting in manicured gardens. Unbelievable access to stables & preparation area - I couldn’t believe we’d be allowed to get up close to the horses in their stalls & watch them being plaited prior to the show. Never to be forgotten.

    The horse show plus the carriage and costume museums and access to the stables is wonderful. However, Get your guide asked us to assemble at 9.50 at some random spot opposite a petrol station, 3 mins walk from the horse show entrance, indicated on Google maps by a dropped pin. The pin is in the wrong place. (We even questioned this via their chat and were assured that the info was correct) Needless to say, there was no one there to meet us and we made our way to the entrance. At the agency window our mobile phone GYG app qr code was exchanged for tickets (no problem). The instructions from GYG are overly complicated. Just turn up at the entrance, show them the code and away you go.

    Simply awesome! It was a great experience. We enjoyed everything: admire the showmanship of Spanish riders and horses, how the horses can piroutte, do a Pas de Deux, and more. Each show consists of 6-8 different choreographies, all of them were amazing! The Museum and the school was instructed in order no acknowledged the entire dancing horse culture.
