Spanish Equestrian Arts


A fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable lesson, where you will perform different Spanish-style moves from disciplines including Doma Classica, Doma Vaquera and Garrocha aboard one of our stunning, classically-trained horses. To savour the full Iberian riding experience, you have the option of using Spanish or Portuguese tack. 


At the Classical Riding Academy, we have several display horses that perform at equestrian arts events across the country to showcase their extensive Spanish equitation skills. Now, it’s your exclusive opportunity to get in the saddle and perform a range of different moves that are inspired by the traditional working riding discipline of Spain – Doma Vaquera. Indeed, many riding styles of the Americas (and a number of those from Europe) have derived from this pioneering approach. You are sure to experience an unforgettable 45-minute session that will have you learning new skills to broaden your riding repertoire. 

Please note: All new customers will need to visit us for an Introduction Lesson before undertaking any of our other lessons or riding experiences. This is essential, as it lets us assess your respective ability in the saddle.
