Andalusia is true paradise for the real horse ‘aficionados’. In every town or village you will find an ‘asociación de caballos’ or in other words, a horse club. This is where the aficionados meet, show their (horses) capacities and ofcourse, dress up to participate in the special events during the year.
Thé event of the year is the horse show in Jerez de la Frontera: La feria del Caballo , held this year from the 7th untill the 13th of May. This feria is held since 1824 and a must not only for the horse lovers, also for them who would like to experience a fantastic Andalusian party. A feria with several shows and parades during the daytime, where people dress up and show the best of themselves and their horses and where partying goes on till the early hours. Not to be missed!
