Feria de Caballos

Did you know that in Jerez de la Frontera, the people dedicate a whole week of festivities to horses? The Feria de Caballos, the festival of the horses, is celebrated every year in May. Along with the Semana Santa, Holy Week (Easter), this festival has been declared International Touristic Interest.

Some historians believe that the Feria de Jerez might have started around the year 1264, after the Spanish reconquered the city from the Moors. Initially it was a festival intended to restore the local economy. This gave the locals the opportunity to sell their harvest and other goods. Clearly, their horses and their love for them is so strong that after more than 700 years, the locals still parade their horses in the streets. The horses and their riders perform and entertain the locals.

People from all over the world come to Jerez to visit this Feria. Owning your equestrian estate in Gaucin means that you can visit the Feria de Caballos as many days as you like. Within a couple of hours you will be immersed in the equestrian lifestyle you have always dreamed of!
