15.2.14 Horse Events in Sanlucar

The annual Horse Fair in Sanlucar will take place on the 28th February, on Andalucia Day. The festivities begin at 11.00 when all the riders gather on the esplanade at the fairground. At 12.00 they will ride through the central streets and back to the fairground, where, at 14.15 there will be an exhibition of horsemanship. The proceedings will close at 19.00. In line with legal requirements, the local police and Civil Protection will be on hand, as well as a vet. This promises to be a great day.

Later in the year, the annual horse races will take place on the beach in two rounds; on the 7,8,9th of August and also on the 21,22,23rd.  The dates are carefully chosen to coincide with suitable tides, so that the purebred horses will have room to compete. Meanwhile, sponsors are being sought. This year will be the 169th year of the races, which have been declared as a festival of international tourist interest.
