See a remarkable display of Spanish horsemanship at a showcase of Andalusian horses, with routines that feature Spanish music and 18th-century costumes. Watch choreographed routines ranging from classical dressage to carriage driving and doma vaquera, which traces its roots to traditional cattle herding techniques. This ‘How the Andalusian Horses Dance’ show is held at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, in the historic center of Jerez.
Make your way to the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art and present your voucher for admission. The shows vary with the day, using between six and eight styles of choreography that features different parts of the Andalusian riding tradition. See doma vaquera, based on techniques honed by traditional cattle herders, or watch the exquisite precision of classical dressage, as horses execute maneuvers such as “the colts,” “airs on horseback,” “pas de deux,” “passage and piaffer,” and more. In displays of carriage driving, horses don a classical harness to demonstrate the old fashioned art, and in “work in hand,” the horses follow commands to carry out classical Haute École dressage exercises. And in the coordinated carousel maneuver, horses and riders work together for a grand finale in the center of the arena. When the show concludes, you’ll be in the heart of Jerez, close to some of the city’s top historic sites, cafes, and destinations.
My expectation for this show were beyond what was performed.We have not seen any special acrobatics of riders except elegant horse riding and a parade with very nice horses which know to dance a little bit following the music
Fantastic show .HORSE AND RIDER WERE AS ONE!!! Complete experience was so good especially for children to be able to view horses and site before entering arena.
Well worth the visit.and gave us time in the afternoon to visit the town and surrounding areas.
