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.

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!

The staff are attentive and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and are well worth arriving an hour earlier just to walk about. The show is a sight to behold. The horses and riders are at one with each other and the synchronised displays are a marvel to behold. If you have any experience and/or knowledge of dressage, you will be amazed, but if not, the show is still an incredible and uplifting experience. One can also meet the horses and I found this to be a wonderful experience.

It was interesting, the horses and riders well trained and well dressed. Too, I felt that for me, after 30 minutes or so, the movements were rather repetitive, although the music changed. Only a few things different were shown later on in the program. For me the 90 minutes was too long and not diverse or interesting enough. The facility, the landscaping and surrounding buildings are awesome.
