Horse-riding & Stunning Equestrian Displays... 

There is no better way to take in and enjoy the Andalucian countryside, so why not try exploring the countryside on horseback and book a horseriding holiday.  The local riding school is just a 10 minute drive from Iznajar so call and book with Dorcas from Cortijo Las Minas.  She speaks English & Spanish and will arrange a time with you that fits with your schedule whilst staying at one of our Spanish holiday villa rental properties.

Visit lakes, reservoirs and rivers on horseback, ride through indigenous forests and down gorges, gallop across never-ending plains and climb mountains. Ride on country tracks and paths, sometimes across open country or olive groves and through forests.

There are also some stunning equestrian displays in Andalucia, probably the most famous of which is the Real Escuela del Arte Andaluzin Jerez.  A spectacular display similar to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna... not to be missed!

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 every Thursday during the summer 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.

Visitors may either watch a show which takes place twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at noon or watch training taking place on other days of the week. Tickets for mid range seats cost around 17 euros each.
