Each show consists of 6-8 different choreographies such as "The Colts," Airs on Horseback," Pas de Deux," Passage and Piaffer," "Domino on Horseback," Airs Above the Ground" and "Fantasy." See the horses demonstrate their ability to draw carriages which were originally used for transport, but are now used for sport and exhibitions, using classical harnesses and driven by coachmen who dexterously demonstrate their skills.

What people are saying about Province of Cádiz

This was a wonderful trip through the countryside to see three of the white villages as well as brief stops at an olive oil factory and an old castle ruins. Our guide, Nieves, narrated the trip with lots of info on Spanish history, culture, flora and fauna and a great recommendation for where to have lunch. It was a long day-but well worth it. I highly recommend this activity

Excellent day. Our guide Rachid was excellent. He met us off the ferry and escorted us back on. Details of meeting place in Tarifia was confusing. Should notify to meet in the port building. Rachid made our day. All together an excellent tour.

Very nice tour. The tour guides were very informative. Too bad that everything was told 3 times... In Spanish, French and English. That makes everything a bit tough... But respect for the tour leader...

The locations were spectacular!! I would skip the oil factory everything else was awesome. Also it would be nice if the guide spoke better english couldnt understand her at all! Overall well worth it!

Excellent show. Worth the train ride from Seville to Jerez de la frontera. Never seen anything this beautiful.
