Hello friends and colleagues, today I present another view of the beautiful courtyard of the museum of carriages belonging to the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, located in an old cellar of aging Sherries, hope you like. Then a few letters about the Foundation.
The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez de la Frontera, is known worldwide for its exhibit "How the Andalusian Horses Dance", a unique show that showcases and summarizes so seemingly natural, all the work since its foundation develops this institution.
In May 1973, S. M. D. King Juan Carlos I, being Prince of Spain, presented in Jerez de la Frontera to D. Alvaro Domecq Romero the "Golden Horse", the highest honor awarded annually equestrian in our country in recognition of the dedication and work on behalf of the horse world. For this reason, Alvaro Domecq first presented his show "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" becoming the source of our current Foundation.
During the first stage, the School was developed under the personal management of its creator. Later, the Ministry of Information and Tourism decided to take charge of it, shopping for it the "Recreation Chains" the Duke of Abrantes. They then carried out the construction of an indoor arena, designed by architect José Luis Picardo, with capacity for 1,600 people and stables for 60 horses.
In 1982 the Ministry gives the responsibility of managing a Trust School, under the auspices of the Provincial de Cádiz, harnessing its relaunch so nationally and internationally.
The Board signed the purchase in 1983 of the School. Its creator and founder, D. Alvaro Domecq Romero, obtained through a public competition Square Manager.
Since 1986 the Department of the Board has exceeded most optimistic goals, finding and providing the necessary resources Institution: economic, human and technical. It is in this year when the school acquired the block of D. Pedro Domecq de la Riva, consisting of thirty-five Spanish horses and a colorful collection of nineteen chariots of fire with appropriate side dishes, some of which date back to 1730, and saddle and embroidery for horses and coachmen, all parts of incalculable historical value.
In June 1987, S. M. The King receives special audience in the Zarzuela Palace Board members, accepting the Honorary Presidency and the entity granting the title "Royal School". On 15 October the same year SS. MM. King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia presided from the Presidential Balcony of the opening ceremony of riding the Royal School Foundation.
In July 2003 the former Royal School Board Foundation becomes, thereby gaining strength in its legal personality and may accept private contributions for its development.
Although the show "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" is, for the outside world, the ultimate form of the work of the school, there are other aspects that are as important or more for the Bank.
Among them we highlight the cultural and social be vehicle Equestrian Heritage; selecting horses for promotion, training of riders from High School, preservation and promotion of dressage and Cowgirl, preserve the prestige of our riding, our Spanish horse race , our traditions and our culture, and with the show, hosting the province of Cadiz and Spain embassy abroad, touring year for various countries.
For all Royal School Foundation conducts training of riders, coachmen hitches, saddlers, clinical assistants and grooms.

A fine presentation of this carriage museum. I like the point of view and the lead-lines offered by the cobbled pavement. Also, the pleasant light and natural colours.

Excellent depth and perspective picture.
You play wonderful with light and shade.

Lovely blue sky here, so vibrant and bright. This is a beautiful old world scene of this place, very different from any modern versions I see here in Ireland. The look of it is very quaint and appealing. This looks like a very nice place.
All the best

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Le cadrage serré est bien fait sur ce petit musée. La netteté est excellente ,mais c'est surtout ce ciel magnifique qui prend la vedette.

une superbe lumière de cette cour du Musée où l'on peut en effet apercevoir des attelages différents, couleurs ou autres
Ce musée doit être intéressant de remonter dans le temps et de voir les moyens de transport, qui ma foi ne polluait pas comme maintenant
Merci de ce partage
Amicalement et bonne journée

a very lovely rustic place, so neat and tranquil too. I love the solid composition and how the slight perspectives, the strong and delicious light, the richness of the colours and the power of the contrasts invigorate the quiet view. The details are delightful and eloquent and I also like the way you've managed the intensity of the light capturing effectively both the luminosity of the parts exposed to the sunshine and the relief provided by the shade. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Muy bonita composicion y un original museo, del que desconocia su existencia, a la vista de la variedad de carros, seguro que es muy interesante de visitar.
Muy bonito y natural colorido.
Buena gestion de la luminosidad y una gran nitidez.
Bonito y novedoso trabajo amigo mio, me gusta.
Disfruta de un buen dia.

Sorry, I'm slow in responding. This is a very lovely photo, the wagon wheels adds to the charm of the museum, the light was strong but you did very well that it is not over exposed and the shadow still have lovely detials. The lack of people adds a sense of peaceful mood. Excellent color and love that blue sky.
