Overview
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.

This is an amazing performance to see if you enjoy horses.

My husband was mesmerized by this show. I fell asleep. We had VIP passes to visit the stables during intermission which was enjoyable.

An exceptional show!

This was a fabulous experience where we witnessed not only a wonderful performance of "dancing" horses, but also excellent opportunities outside the arena to watch the training and practising in such a beautiful setting. The entire experience is just "class"!

Magnificent horses showing their skills - value for money

I wasn’t sure what to expect only going to the show during a day visit to the city. The horses had been trained very well to perform and seemed to enjoy their time in the show. Their riders clearly had a great relationship with their...More

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

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
