Do not leave Jerez without exploring what defines this city best: its equestrian passion.
Jerez and its horses.
If anything best defines Jerez it is the city's horses and the culture and tradition they represent. One of the best places to admire these fine specimens in the wild is the Yeguada de la Cartuja Stables. Guided tours inform visitors about the history of thoroughbred horses in Finca del Suero, where the mares run semi-free, nurse their foals and share their space with stunning stallions. Visits include an exhibition of carriages and a tour of the facilities where the horses are cared for and trained. On Saturday mornings there is a display at the Yeguada de la Cartuja Stables, where you can see for yourself why the riding schools are famous in Jerez.
