What people are saying about Province of Cádiz, Spain

The horse show plus the carriage and costume museums and access to the stables is wonderful. However, Get your guide asked us to assemble at 9.50 at some random spot opposite a petrol station, 3 mins walk from the horse show entrance, indicated on Google maps by a dropped pin. The pin is in the wrong place. (We even questioned this via their chat and were assured that the info was correct) Needless to say, there was no one there to meet us and we made our way to the entrance. At the agency window our mobile phone GYG app qr code was exchanged for tickets (no problem). The instructions from GYG are overly complicated. Just turn up at the entrance, show them the code and away you go.

Simply awesome! It was a great experience. We enjoyed everything: admire the showmanship of Spanish riders and horses, how the horses can piroutte, do a Pas de Deux, and more. Each show consists of 6-8 different choreographies, all of them were amazing! The Museum and the school was instructed in order no acknowledged the entire dancing horse culture.

Top quality experience for the entire family . I am from Jerez but currently live in the USA. As almost a local I really can recommend it

Great professional show! Highly recommended! Happy we experienced it during our trip to Andalucia.

It felt like a privilege to visit the facility and see the wonderful show
