Not being a great fan of horse, I found the tour overly long and tedious. Would highly recommend to my friends who love horses and everything surrounding them. Theses people are well informe, have along history with Andalusian horses.

A wonderful well organised introduction to the beautiful Andalusian horse. Tours are offered in many languages. Our well informed guide spoke great English. You visit the stallions in their stables and the other buildings of this fascinating studfarm. They are so well behaved. The show in the indoor area had plenty of variety with mares and foals free running and... More

As a lifelong horse lover, once I saw this tour/horse show on TripAdvisor, I purchased tickets online long before even leaving for my trip. I almost didn't make it due to difficulties with my flight to Spain, but am so very glad I ended up being able to get there! The tour was informative and interesting ("just enough" as my... More

A local in Jerez recommended that we visit Yeguada de la Cartuja, and we were not disappointed! We had a fantastic tour guide called Andries, who took us on a tour of the horse farm and gave us some insight into the history, breeding and training of Spanish horses. The horses are magnificent! I know very little about horses, and... More

Love, love, love this place! Here you find the peace and beauty of nature. Every Saturday, from March till November, you can visit this amazing place. First you start with a guided tour, then you will see the show. Everything shows the nature of these gorgeous animals!

The only problem with visiting Yeguada de la Cartuja, is that you will want to buy an Andalusian horse. I imagine that they're not cheap! Fantastic place, with an informative tour, followed by a nice show. A real must do when visiting enchanting Jerez!
