Full description
With your admission ticket you’ll enter the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art at the visitor reception center, where you’ll enjoy an audio-visual presentation on the history of equestrian art in Andalusia (available until 11:00).

The reception area leads into the gardens that feature a variety of exotic plants. Note the great fountain which adorns the center of the gardens and whose water jets invite visitors to enter further into the grounds of the Royal School.

Across the fountain, the palace rises majestically above the gardens. It is a beautiful example of 19th-century architecture, designed by Charles Garnier. On the ground floor you can admire the state rooms, decorated as they were originally conceived. In the basement you’ll find the Museum of Equestrian Art, which comprises 11 rooms dedicated to the origins and history of equestrian art and the horse in Andalusia.

Afterwards, you’ll see where the harnesses are made and repaired. This laborious work is carried out in the saddlery by the master harness maker and his apprentices.

Watch the training that takes place in the outdoor exercise rings, and see the indoor arena, a building designed in authentic Andalusian style. With a capacity for 1,600 people, this is the ideal place to watch the daily training of horses and riders.

In the stables, an octagonal complex, you’ll see the school’s most emblematic horses. In the center of the stables is the tack room, where all the harnesses used for daily training and for shows are kept.

A visit to the carriage museum marks the end of your visit. Admire the vehicles, horses, harnesses, and equestrian costumes in the museum’s collection.

This excursion from Seville (the school is actually in Jerez de la Frontera - almost Cadiz!) was a real treat, especially for my wife who is a Horse Whisperer. The level of excellence prevalent in the facility, the students and trainers was palpable. Don’t miss the Saddlery in the small brick building at the back of the grounds!

We enjoyed a really excellent and unique morning at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art. Our guide Elena was very informative as she showed us the stables and the tack room, and we loved being able to watch the fantastic horses being trained in the arena! We have already recommended it highly as a must do trip in Jerez to friends and family.
