Full description
Marvel at the equestrian skills of Spanish horses and riders at a unique "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" ballet at the Fundacion Real Escuela Andaluza Del Arte Ecuestre (Foundation 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 (country-style riding), and traditional equestrian chores. Each show consists of 6-8 different choreographies, scheduled by the school according to the following repertoire: Doma Vaquera: Doma Vaquera is a Spanish riding discipline, based on traditional cattle herding. The horseman rides his horse around the arena using only one hand, first trotting and later galloping, changing the rhythm and performing pirouettes and arreones (breaking into a gallop). Classical Dressage: See different choreographies, such as “The Colts,” “Airs on Horseback,” “Pas de Deux,” “Passage and Piaffer,” “Domino on Horseback,” “Airs Above the Ground” and “Fantasy.” The horses carry out advanced exercises to classical music. Carriage Driving: Marvel as the horses demonstrate their ability to draw carriages. These horse-drawn carriages were originally used for transport, but are now relegated to sport and exhibitions, using classical harnesses and driven by coachmen who dexterously demonstrate exciting skills. Work in Hand: Admire the skill of a horse that obeys its rider even when the horseman is not in the saddle. They will carry out classical Haute École dressage exercises, such as levades, caprioles, courbettes, piaffe (between pillars), and the Spanish walk. Carrousel: See a group of horses and riders perform advanced equestrian exercises in unison, providing a fitting end to the performance.

    The performance of horses & riders was excellent for the whole show. Where ever you sit you get a great view of the program & because they perform both end of the arena you do not miss anything. You are also very close to the action & as the show is a full hour & a half great value.

    Jerez de la Frontera is a great destination in Andalucia (near Gibraltar and Cadiz) and aside from tasting Sherry “Jerez,” the must-do event is attending this famous Andalusian Horses Show. They are held only on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s at Noon. So, plan accordingly. The show was wonderful, working up from just 1 horse to 2 horses to 4 and in the end 8 horses - all performing to rhythmic music in beautifully choreographed movements. Luckily, the show is indoors and in the shade. There were small cafes and gift shops on site, but I’m not sure about parking. We were able to walk less than 10-minutes from Villa Jerez Hotel located in the same residential area. If you can coordinate your travels to visit Jerez on a Tuesday or Thursday, definitely see this!
