In Vejer de la Frontera is the stud owned by the Corales family who specialise in breeding and training Andalucian horses for Doma Vaquera. The current Spanish Doma Vaquero champion is eldest son Gonzalo Corales who won the national championship for the second time in October 2008.
Gonzalo’s brother Antonio Corales is a top Doma Vaquero and Doma Classical teacher, having trained with the Royal Equestrian school of Art in Jerez.
Modern Doma Vaquera competitions provide a challenging test for both the horse and rider. At advanced level, they are performed in a 60mx20m arena, with explosive gallops from a standing start, skid stops, canter pirouettes and spins. There are also the traditional moves of piaffe, passage and the famous Spanish walk.
