Unsurprisingly for somewhere with such impeccable upper-class credentials, the Jerezanos love horse-riding, and their annual Feria is second to none for equestrian attractions. In nearby Sanlucar de Barrameda, a coastal sherry town, the annual horse races, which take place every August along the beach opposite the Parque Doñana, are a major social and sporting event. If you're not able to make it to either of these events, then visit the Real Escuela del Arte Ecuestre, where you can see the famous white Cartujano (Carthusian) purebred horses performing every Tuesday and Thursday, with an extra show on Fridays in August; on other days, the training sessions are equally fascinating.
