In the province of Seville, the horse is an integral part of our traditions and culture, but also of our economy and industry. Since ancient times, the culture of the horse has passed from generation to generation and is very closely linked to the countryside and farm work, riding and local festivities. The horse is present in our artistic, cultural, scenic, natural and ethnographic heritage, and today it is also present in the fields of training, health, active tourism and rural tourism.
