Jerez is recognised as a “horse city” and forms part of the European Network of Horse Cities, hosting the World Equestrian Games in 2002.
Horses bred in Jerez have earned great international prestige and recognition, an integral part of local heritage. Not in vain is this the city that in the late fifteenth century saw the birth of the Yeguada de la Cartuja – Hierro del Bocado and the Carthusian horses, bloodline of the Purebred Spanish Horse.
The beauty of these horses can be admired at the Foundation Royal Andalusian School of the Equestrian Art, at the Yeguada de la Cartuja Hierro del Bocado and at other outstanding stud farms.
Jerez also offers the chance to visit riding schools, farms and equestrian centres where you can participate in equestrian sports and enjoy routes on horseback.
