What is so wonderful about Andalucía is the extent of riding available here. The famous Andalucían Horse has spectacularly encouraged the horsey world in Spain for years and years.
Andalucía is famous for its beautiful scenery, and beautiful horses - what a combination! Local horse riding centres offer beginners classes, classes of improvement as well as scenic beach and forest rides, routes and sport events to get a taste of the magic of Andalucía!

Jerez is the home of the Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre, and is known all over the world thanks to its show entitled "How the Andalucian Horses Dance", a unique exhibition of horsemanship which both exhibits and summarises the work which the institution has carried out.
If you buy a joint ticket to visit the Royal School and the Horse Carriage Museum, located just behind the Royal School, you can visit the museum and discover the wonderful world of driving thanks to a splendid collection of carriages and the very latest multimedia technology.

The Cartuja Monastery has become an essential centre for the local horse breeding since it was founded at the end of the fifteenth century. Cartujan monks bred a herd of horses for three centuries which became one of the most famous and appreciated equine animals in the world.
