Jerez de la Frontera: How the Andalusian Horses Dance

1. Jerez de la Frontera: How the Andalusian Horses Dance

Marvel at the equestrian skills of Spanish horses and riders at a unique "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" ballet at the Fundacion Real Escuela Andaluza Del Arte Ecuestre (Foundation Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art) in Jerez de la Frontera. Accompanied by quintessential Spanish music and 18th-century style costumes, the choreography uses movements based on classical dressage, Doma Vaquera (country-style riding), and traditional equestrian chores. Each show consists of 6-8 different choreographies, scheduled by the school according to the following repertoire: Doma Vaquera: Doma Vaquera is a Spanish riding discipline, based on traditional cattle herding. The horseman rides his horse around the arena using only one hand, first trotting and later galloping, changing the rhythm and performing pirouettes and arreones (breaking into a gallop). Classical Dressage: See different choreographies, such as “The Colts,” “Airs on Horseback,” “Pas de Deux,” “Passage and Piaffer,” “Domino on Horseback,” “Airs Above the Ground” and “Fantasy.” The horses carry out advanced exercises to classical music. Carriage Driving: Marvel as the horses demonstrate their ability to draw carriages. These horse-drawn carriages were originally used for transport, but are now relegated to sport and exhibitions, using classical harnesses and driven by coachmen who dexterously demonstrate exciting skills. Work in Hand: Admire the skill of a horse that obeys its rider even when the horseman is not in the saddle. They will carry out classical Haute École dressage exercises, such as levades, caprioles, courbettes, piaffe (between pillars), and the Spanish walk. Carrousel: See a group of horses and riders perform advanced equestrian exercises in unison, providing a fitting end to the performance.

What people are saying about Province of Cádiz, Spain

I did enjoy the show, however a large corporate group arrived late and spoiled it for me and my guests. They walked through the line of seats to get to theirs whilst the horses were performing, they kept getting up, talking on phones and has no regard for fellow spectators.

Do not miss this experience of a lifetime .... it is like a ballet of Andalusian Equestrians who move with both gentleness and strength. Breathtaking ... the trainers and horses communicate expertly! Bravo!

Absolutely lovely display of horsemanship and equestrian athleticism. Such beautiful horses....lucky to catch one of the last performances of the head rider before his recent retirement!

We went to see the Anderlusion horses on Thursday. Even if you don’t like horses this trip is a must from start to finish even the music is amazing, a big 5 star rating from us

Excellent venue and amazing show. Close to central Jerez.
