Yeguada de la Cartuja

Comments 3 Standard

If you didn’t know already, I stinking love horses. Given that information, it should be no surprise that this post is about none other than horses. I hope to own one some day when we’re settled down for more than a few years at a time. Until then I’ll be touring as many Spanish horse farms as possible.

We visited an Andalusian horse farm a couple weekends ago with friends. Compared to A Campo Abierto, Yeguada de la Cartuja was a step up just in the aspect that you could be hands-on with the horses and pet them. They also offered a carriage ride on top of the tour of the property and demonstration of the animals.

Here are some of my favorite photos from our time at Yeguada.


These colts were so funny and entertaining. They reminded me of teenage boys trying to show off. Some of them kept bucking and naying very loudly.

Then they brought their Mamas out and every single one of them started nursing. It was so sweet! I know my LLLadies back home will think the same!

For those of you in Rota, get your tail on over to Yeguada de la Cartuja. It’s an easy drive just past Jerez de la Frontera.

  1. Photo #3 love the yellow wall makes a great back drop… Photo #6 yum… yum…. just saying …. Oh the white horses purty purty…..I love living your life in pictures….

  2. oh, the nursing pic is so sweet! what a beautiful post. we were at the fair this last weekend and i loved walking through the barns. the draft horses were definitely my favorite, they are so powerful and majestic. i have never been around horses much but i think it would be so neat to learn the personality and bond with one, the way we do with cats/dogs. they sound like they have such neat personalities and i’ve heard they can be extremely loyal.
