Equestrian Art in Jerez: The Magic of Horses




位置:

Cádiz


There are many reasons to travel to Andalusia, in southern Spain. One of them is to learn about “Spanish equestrian art”. You can experience it first-hand, for example, at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez de la Frontera (Cadiz). Visit this internationally-renowned institution and tour its facilities, where you will see that horses form part of the culture of Andalusia. You will also be able to admire the way they dance to the beat of traditional Spanish music. Do you fancy it?

Beautiful, docile, noble and admired all over the world for centuries. This is a description of the Purebred Spanish Horse, an animal with over 3,000 years of history in this country, praised by Aristotle himself back in the 4th century B.C. Thousands of years have gone by, yet this devotion continues to be as fervent as ever. Visit the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art and see some unique specimens, very closely identified with Andalusia and with many of its festivals and traditions, such as the Rocío Pilgrimage, the races on the beach in Sanlúcar de Barrameda and the Horse Fair in Jerez, all designated as being of International Tourist Interest.

During your visit to the Royal School, you can see the daily training sessions for riders in the Riding School; the stables where the horses are rested and pampered; the galloping and warm-up tracks; the Harness Shop, a veritable laboratory for the maintenance and restoration of equestrian equipment; and much more.

Stop by the Carriage Museum, which houses a collection of carriages and saddles that are real treasures, and the Equestrian Art Museum, a multimedia, interactive experience that will introduce you to this fascinating world in an original and entertaining way.

And whatever else you do, be sure not to miss “How Andalusian Horses Dance”, an impressive show in which the horses move and perform dance steps and choreography to the beat of well-known Spanish melodies, while the riders wear costumes in the style typical of the 18th century. Enjoy exhibitions, dressage competitions and carriage-pulling by these purebred horses. History, art, beauty, entertainment...this is what the show is like, spectacular and colourful, and suitable for an audience of all ages. It is sure to fascinate you.
