Equestrian ballet "How horses dance”

Ballet ecuestre Cómo bailan los caballos (4)

You are the best immortal horses, children of the sun and musical foam. Who isn't raptured by you and your rhythmic step?

Rafael Alberti thus captures the beauty of horses. The writer simulated the horses trots with music and dance. Como Bailan los Caballos Andaluces is a show that's unique to the world, where riders and animals are choreographed down to the last millimetre.

The Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Ecuestre in Jerez, Cadiz, attracts hundreds of people every Tuesday and Thursday, when the sun is at its highest, to see equestrian culture. The Foundation has taken on a social and cultural commitment from the Equestrian Heritage of Andalusia. Teaching techniques in the world of horses and selecting Spanish thoroughbred horses for breading are some another of their activities.

In summary, the Foundation also acts as a school, and the few students who have perfected their culture and dressage over the last four years, are keen to perform at this equestrian fiesta. Education is the cornerstone of the foundation's activity. It currently teaches two areas: training of Sports Techniques in Horse riding and Occupational Vocational Training.

The Foundation chooses the best Spanish thoroughbred fouls on offer from breeders. They are trained for four years. This is the time needed to break them in.

From then on, they join the oldest group of horses, which are the most used in the exhibitions programmed by the Royal School. Students and horses train together, because one wouldn't be anything without the other.

This is the only way they can achieve a perfect classical or country dressage, in addition to learning the world of harnessing, they are submerged in traditional old riding such as Levadas, Cabriolas and Corvetas, which always bring the crowd to their feet in applause.

The spectacle is defined as an authentic equestrian ballet but for those us who have seen it, the meaning much greater. Visitors are hypnotized by the majesty of the beast moving slowly to flamenco rhythms.

The Spanish horse is bright, energetic, rhythmic and flexible, with outstanding peaks and extensions and is easy to train for the meet; it has a spirited, noble, docile and balanced temperament, with a great capacity for learning and it's the master of dance for an hour and a half, where without doubt, the only thing it won't do is leave you unmoved.
