Horse cart is the main attribute of the festival in Jerez

For those who know about Jerez just as a nice alcoholic drink would be a small discovery the fact that it's also a city in Spain, which hosts a series of landmark festivals. One of them is Equestrian Festival in Jerez or Feria del Caballo, which began this year on May 2, 2010.

Equestrian Festival in Jerez is not the only event of its kind in Andalusia. The parade of carts is also held at the magnificently celebrated Fair in Seville, which is held in the largest city in the area every spring in April.

Equestrian Festival in Jerez is a bright and colorful event, which annually attracts thousands of tourists in Jerez. The main action takes place in a huge celebration fair stadium Gonzalo Hontoria with an area of 52,000 square meters. At the show viewers can see the famous horse breeders from Spain. The stadium of Jerez hosts a parade, which also includes the traditional Spanish holiday decorated carts - "casetas".

The carts make up the attractive part of the action. By analogy with the many Spanish carnivals, where the main part of the ceremony takes place on a richly decorated platform, at the Horse Festival in central Iberia are ornate carriages. Here, each wagon is distinguished by its unique pattern, palette and form of jewelry. At the same time each year at the Festival for the decoration is chosen a new theme, which must meet one of the regions of Spain.

In 2010 Jerez Horse Festival promises to be one of the most popular. According to the organizers, the procession of carts this time will include 222 horse-drawn carriages. A similar mass was last seen only in 1992.

Equestrian Festival in Jerez this year will last till May 9. Portal for those who are planning to visit the colorful festival  in Jerez offers rental of apartments,   villas and cottages, as well as hotels in Jerez.
