Feria del Caballo

Join us for a week of riding and fun at the Feria del Caballo in Jerez



Spain's world famous sherry producing town, Jerez de la Frontera, plays host to the most prestigious equine heritage event in the whole of Europe, the 'feria del caballo'.
The annual fair began as a livestock show in 1284 and is now a magnet for horse lovers. There are all kinds of horse related activities during this festive week, such as international show-jumping competitions, vaulting, dressage, horse rally, select livestock exhibitions and auctions.
It attracts many thousands of visitors each year who come to witness the remarkable displays of horsemanship along with the bullfights and exhibitions of Sevilliana (flamenco). During the day the González de Hontoria park fills with hundreds of riders dressed a la Andaluz, and carriages that drive through the streets of the show ground in a majestic spectacle well worth seeing.
 However, the highlight of the Jerez Horse Fair is undoubtedly the "Como Bailan los Caballos Andaluces " or the Dancing Andalusian Horses.
People eat, drink. and dance Sevillanas until the early hours of the morning with an incredible, enjoyable atmosphere that seems to transform the park into one big flamenco hall.
Children’s attractions, bullfights, sevillana dance competitions and fireworks are other festive activities that complete the programme of the Fair.
A riding tour culminating at the Jerez Horse Fair is an extraordinary experience for those interested in horses and Spanish traditions. Organizing ferias is one thing that the Spanish, and the Andalusians in particular excel at and the Feria de Caballo de Jerez is certainly no exception.
