Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art
Here you can enjoy the best horse shows in the city. A must-see.
Jerez horses are known to dance like true artists, trained and guided by their riders. And the best place to enjoy a show of this nature is the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, a symbol of horseback tradition where you can watch an equestrian ballet called 'How the Andalusian Horses Dance'. When you cross the wrought iron gates into the Recreo de las Cadenas and you walk into its gardens, guarded by a luxurious fountain, you will find a building called 'El Picadero' (The Riding School), which can hold up to 1,600 people. The Royal School not only offers equestrian shows, but every morning members of staff are available to talk to tourists about how they care for the horses, and how they are trained and indulged in this beautiful setting. They also discuss the craftsmen who make the saddles and restore harnesses.
