Real Escuela de Arte Equestre
For a real 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 spirited performances take place on Thursdays (and some other days, depending on the month) at the riding school, adjacent to the historic 19th century Palacio de las Cadenas, in the sherry town of Jerez de la Frontera. 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 school also has a practical role in training horses and horsemen in doma va quera and doma classica - dressage, coach-driving, blacksmithy and the manufacture and care of harness.
