The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art Foundation, in Jerez de la...

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.

Visited Jerez de la Frontera yesterday and attended the dancing horses show. Well worth the trip. The horses are simply amazing in their ability to dance to the music. The grounds of the Fundacion are brilliant and well worth going early to wander around. The palace was designed by Garnier (think Paris Opera) and is beautiful The garden are very... More

Incredible show of true equestrian art. The show runs for 90 minutes and displays the best type of equestrian skill of both rider and horse. Pay the extra few euros to get in rows 2 and 3 to be closer to the action. No photos allowed which is a shame but understandable. Very good gift shop. We booked tickets online... More

We happened to be in Jerez on a Saturday when there was a performance. It was recommended by the tourist information office, and we would say if you are in Jerez on the day of a performance don't miss it! The performance lasts 90 minutes + a 10 min interval. There is a mixture of led and ridden disciplines, all... More

This was a real highlight of our trip as far as I was concerned. I have always loved horses, and these were so very handsome and incredibly well trained. This was a beautiful experience!

We had been to the Spanish Riding School performance in Vienna, Austria and thought that was good. The dancing horse performance at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art Foundation is even better! It is possible to make this a day trip from many areas, we took the back way from Seville and enjoyed the countryside, visited the grounds and... More

If you are a horse lover you will love this place. Museum of tack, coaches, equestrian livery. Built by Sandemans sherry family at the same time as they made the Sherry Bodega.

You don't have to be a horse lover to just be blown away by the whole scene and show in particular. We went on a fairly dull day with rain threatening but it didn't dampen things for us. We booked direct online without any problem and took our ticket reference to the booking office at the main entrance. There is... More

We went to the show as part of an organised tour by Blands of Gibraltar. I had no idea what to expect so it was a real adventure! It was a bit chilly in the huge indoor arena in February so glad I took a warm jacket. The show itself was varied and fascinating. Mounted riders, horses being led on... More
