Experience the Andalusian School of Equestrian Art the Dancing Stallions of Spain
For a spectacular performance of the most noble and classical kind, no one should miss the magnificent stallions of the Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre, the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, whose incredible performances take place on Thursdays, and Selected Saturdays at the riding school, adjacent to the historic 19th century Palacio de las Cadenas. There are tours of the 60 stables arced round a cobbled courtyard and a wonderful tack room, with harnesses and tack worn by all the performing stallions, some of it dating back to the 18th century.
The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art is an institution in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, devoted to conserving the ancestral abilities of the Andalusian horse, maintaining the classical traditions of Spanish baroque horsemanship, preparing horses and riders for international dressage competitions, and providing education in all aspects of horsemanship, coach driving, blacksmithing, the care and breeding of horses, saddlery, and the manufacture and care of horse harness.
The Royal Andalusian School is a riding school comparable to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria. Like the Spanish Riding School, the Royal Andalusian School is well known for its “dancing stallions” shows for the tourists. The school is adjacent to the historic nineteenth-century Palacio Duque de Abrantes (or Palacio de las Cadenas) in Jerez.
