Jerez de la Frontera: Andalusian Horse Dance & Museums

Overview

Horses perform advanced exercises to classical music. Each show consists of 6-8 different choreographies such as “The Colts”, Airs on Horseback, Pas de Deux, Passage and Piaffer, “Domino on Horseback”, Airs Above the Ground and “Fantasy”. Watch the horses demonstrate their ability to pull carriages that were originally used for transport but are now used for sport and exhibitions, using classic harnesses and steered carriages deftly demonstrating their skills. Look for classic “Haute École” dressage exercises such as levadas, caprioles, courbettes, piaffe (between the pillars) and the Spanish walk. Watch a group of horses and riders perform advanced riding exercises together, a fitting end to the show.
The entrance to the area is through the Visitor Reception Center, where you will find a digital cinema where you can watch a spectacular audiovisual presentation of the history of equestrian art in Andalusia until 11:00 a.m. This area leads to the gardens, which contain a large number of exotic plants. The palace itself rises majestically above the gardens and is a beautiful example of 19th century architecture.
In the basement you will find the Museum of Equestrian Art, which consists of 11 rooms, where you will discover the origin and history of equestrian art and horses in Andalusia.
