Departure Time

12:00 PM
Make your way to the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art and present your voucher for admission. The shows vary with the day, using between six and eight 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 coordinated carousel maneuver, horses and riders work together for a grand finale in the center of the arena.

When the show concludes, you’ll be in the heart of Jerez, close to some of the city’s top historic sites, cafes, and destinations.

Tried to cancel show 7 days before performance on Viator site as flight to Spain was cancelled. Site would not allow cancellation even though it promised refund up to 24 hours before show. Lost the money even although we followed all instructions for cancellation and guaranteed refund. Feel cheated.

My expectation for this show were beyond what was performed.We have not seen any special acrobatics of riders except elegant horse riding and a parade with very nice horses which know to dance a little bit following the music

We inform you that the choreography of our show uses movements based on classical dressage and traditional equestrian chores, there is no acrobatics movements like for example in the circus.

Excellent show but it was only announced in Spanish. If the safety briefing and 'no photos' can be in English/German etc, then why not the main show? Still spellbinding to see what the horses can do.
