Escuela de Equitación
Real Maestranza de Caballería can be translated as Royal Riding School. Our school can trace its origins back to the 16th century, and has over the years consolidated its track record in the professional teaching of Dressage with an impressive competitive record and a clear commitment to the Spanish Sport Horse. The school today represents the origins of the institution as Maestranza de Caballería, and offers technical and sports equestrian training with official qualifications.
La escuela de equitación de la Real Maestranza, cuyos orígenes se remontan al siglo XVI, tiene una consolidada trayectoria en la enseñanza profesional de la Doma Clásica con gran presencia en el ámbito deportivo y con una clara apuesta por el Caballo de Deporte Español. La escuela hoy representa el origen de la institución como Maestranza de Caballería, y ofrece una formación ecuestre técnica y deportiva con titulación oficial.
These courses are designed for beginners and intermediate riders from Ronda and the surrounding area. The main aim is to encourage the younger generations to learn about the World of horse riding and enjoy being in the company of horses thus facilitating progress towards higher levels of equestrian skills.
The school occupies two separate sites in Ronda: the main covered dressage ring, form part of the main national heritage site along with the bull-ring and museum complex; the open air ring, paddocks, main stables and hostel for students are located just outside the old city walls, next to the Arab Baths.
The school’s extra-curricular activities are designed to reinforce and extend student learning. Recognised professionals in a wide range of specialist skills and techniques visit the school to share their knowledge and experience.
