Jerez De La Frontera


I do love Spain since the first time I went there with some friends in the far 1989.

This is a brief report from Jerez in Andalusia (south Spain) located in the middle between Cadiz and Seville. 

The Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre was founded in 1973 by Alvaro Domecq Romero. and is known all over the world thanks to its show entitled “How the Andalusian Horses Dance” a unique exhibition of horsemanship which both exhibits and summarises the work which the institution has carried out since its establishment. 

In May 1973 his Majesty King Juan Carlos I – then Crown Prince of Spain – awarded Don Alvaro Domecq Romero the ‘Caballo de Oro’ (Golden Horse) trophy in Jerez de la Frontera. This is the most prestigious equestrian trophy awarded annually in Spain in recognition of dedication to, and work carried out in favour of, the horse. In honour of this award, Alvaro Domecq presented his show “How the Andalusian Horses Dance” for the very first time, such event representing the origin of our Foundation.

In 1983 the Governing Body purchased the School and after public tender the post of Technical Director was awarded to its creator and founder, D. Alvaro Domecq Romero.
