Went to see this show with my grown daughter we were not disappointed- I am the one with an interest in horses not her but even she really enjoyed the evening. We only stayed for the show so there was plenty of time to go out later if that what you want to do

After the show we were bused to a restaurant for a meal and more flamenco dancing as the entertainment. The food was excellent considering the group was around 150 persons.

Have to agree with most of what has been said. Simply amazing horse show, beautiful horses, riders and music. The coach from San Pedro collected almost everywhere on route to Torremolinos, so took twice the time it should have done. We left at 15:55 in the afternoon so you can judge that for yourself! The Flamenco show was ok, but... More

The evening was disappointing for the length of bus ride. The ride out was over an hour and the return was more than 1 1/2 hours and to top the evening off, the driver dropped us at the wrong stop. The stop was over 1 km away from where we should have been dropped off and we had no idea... More

Horses were interesting and beautiful, but dinner & Flamenco show were awful!! The bus ride took forever. From Malaga it took about an hour and a half for what would be a 25 minute cab ride. The dinner was about like airline food. Dessert was pink yoghurt. Just terrible. The Flamenco show was almost funny it was so bad. It... More

Let me start by saying that if you love horses and dressage you will probably have a good time at the horse show. Even as someone with very little knowledge of horsemanship could tell that the riders and horses were incredibly talented. That part at least was fairly enjoyable. My advice beyond that is to give it a miss. Definitely... More

Firstly this show is a credit to all those who work with these magnificent animals. The horses are extremely well groomed and highly trained and the expertise of the horsemen and women is exemplary. The horses dancing to a waltz during the finale was highly amusing as was the dance to the Torreador march from Carmen, excellent. This is a... More
