Saddlery/tack shops in Andalucia?

Hi all, probably a long shot on Fodors but I am looking for info on saddlery stores in Andalucia.
Have recently returned to horse riding here in Oz and would love to bring back a leather momento from ths horsey part of Spain. (Obviously not a saddle unfortunately!)
I have seen a few online stores based here but haven't uncovered an actual address yet.
Thanks for any help.

With the Royal Riding school there, I know there is at least one in Jerez. You might contact the school or ask your hotel if you are staying in the area.

This is the only one I see with an address in Jerez.
Hipica Del Sur S.L.
A/.Circo,1
11405 Jerez de La Frontera
Phone: 0034-956-324209

I searched for: Address of tack shop in Jerez, Spain. You might try that for other cities. I did not look in Seville or Granada. Good luck. Great idea of something special to purchase.

We walked by a nice tack shop in Sevilla. We did not enter, as I no longer have horses and don't need anything. But it looked very nice, with good quality goods in the windows. I could probably identify the street if I looked at a map. It was fairly near the cathedral square, between there and the river where we went for a run.

The name in spanish is Guarnicionería, and they are not hard to find in big rural towns as Osuna, I'll check.
But it would be useful to know where you are in Andalusia.

Hi all, wow, thank you for the responses!
Josele, we will be spending time in Granada, Ronda, Seville with probably a day trip to Jerez . (probably definitely thanks to sassafras.) thanks for the translation!
Enzian, great lead - if you think of anything more definite that would be great, otherwise I will google as suggested.

Here you can find anything: http://www.caballoyjinete.com/
in Ronda city center, by the Alameda del Tajo. These are the real things, not imitations for the general tourist.

In Sevilla, perhaps experience real deal flamenco in Casa de la Memória? Popular with tourists, but the artists are dead serious and often some of the very greatest on the current scene perform here. Pastora Galván from Sevilla was voted best female flamenco dancer by Spanish critics last year, and she is now dancing here once a week. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2SBUcrJgeQ

No drinks, no food, just flamenco. Should give you an introduction to the beauty of the art.

Azahar lives in Sevilla and has got excellent suggestions for tapas bars and restaurants. The recs are ordered by district, and be sure to visit places outside the beautiful but very touristy Santa Cruz district. Here are some suggestions:
Enrique Becerra: http://azahar-sevilla.com/sevilletap...rique-becerra/
Rinconcillo from 1670: http://azahar-sevilla.com/sevilletap...l-rinconcillo/
