Andalusian horse told by Club Cavallo Italia

The Andalusian horse has been recognized as a distinct breed since the 15th century and its conformation has changed very little over the centuries.

The Andalusian horse is also known as the “pure Spanish breed” and its place of origin is Andalusia (Spain) although the origins of this horse are controversial.

In fact, it seems that the Andalusian horse descends from the Berber and Arabian horses that arrived in Spain in 711 with the Moors, subsequently crossed with indigenous horses.

Andalusian horse, Like the Arabian…

Like the Arabian horse, for many centuries the Andalusian horse has been used to improve many native European breeds and, as some specimens were brought by Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to conquer America, the Andalusian horse also helped to form a large part of the American races.

The Andalusian horse is an agile horse, despite a certain heaviness, noble in its bearing, easy to handle but, above all, it has steps that only it can perform, like the Spanish step.

The Spaniards consider the tail that skims the ground and the very long mane of great value: this is why great care is taken of it and every evening the hair of the Andalusian horse is brushed and, to prevent those of the mane from becoming ruffled, they are braided in a soft, loose braid.

The Andalusian horse is an elegant, harmonious and noble horse.

The Andalusian horse used in high school, in bullfights, where it shows all its courage, and is considered a horse for walking and, being a good jumper, for sports.

Elegant, harmonious and with a noble bearing, the Andalusian horse, bred in Europe and South America, is an excellent saddle horse, a good jumper and is considered above all a horse for walking and sports.

Very similar to the Andalusian horse, but a little smaller, more rustic and less elegant, it is a light saddle and draft horse (gray or black), bred only in Spain, and the “Minorchino”, more angular and less elegant than to its ancestor, it is widely used in circus shows for its ability to rear on command.

Its most famous descendants are the “Certosino” derived from a selection of Andalusians made at the end of the 15th century by the Carthusian monks of Jerez de la Frontera.

And now why don’t you go to the page of the smallest horse in the world, the Falabella horse.
