Having seen the spanish riding school, we decided to view the cadre noir. Sat center line bottom row and couldd not have had a more spectacular view. Explanation to non horsy folks perfect and the beautiful airs above the ground. Definitely worth the time

Brilliant show describing the different kinds of work they do with the horses here. Horses looked happy. Had great seats for standard pricing, right down on the arena so close to the horses.
