The whole morning was so well organised. It was so good to have an English speaking guide , especially one who was both knowledgeable and very pleasant. You got a really thorough idea of the workings of the place . The demonstration was really entertaining and our 2 granddaughters were spellbound. Excellent value for money. Ample parking. The complementary drink was a welcome bonus!

We really loved it. A lot was offered. Definitely worth a trip there. First we learned a lot about the stud and breeding and about the Carthusian horses themselves. You could see everything and also get close to the horses. At the end there was a performance. Simply brilliant - highly recommended!

Lovely place full of history. Andreas, passionate guide who makes you appreciate even more the beauty of the place, the horses and what they represent !!! The show of the dancing horses is also beautiful! I recommend it to everybody!!

Top quality experience for the entire family . I am from Jerez but currently live in the USA. As almost a local I really can recommend it

A really great and well organised morning. Highly recommend!
