How awesome! Hopefully the boss gives her blessing and your Mom can end up with an awesome horse of her own...

If people are so impatient to see PRE horses I'm tempted to post pictures of the gorgeous Andalusians my TB lives with to whet their appetite a bit XD

Iberian horses


You make me envious.

One small point - Lusitanos are the Portuguese national breed and some of them are used to fight the bulls in the arena. Andalucians are Spanish.

There is a close connection between the two breeds but they are different. I have found that the Lusitano is heavier but very alert.

The Andalucian is to be seen in all its splendour in the summer feria (fairs) in Spain especially down south in the region of Jerez.
Friends of mine who are Welsh, own a riding centre near Gibraltar. They buy locally Andalucian youngsters for their business but invariably the horses are backed by Spaniards - then my friends bring the horses on using English(BHS) methods.

Spanish men leave the males entire. The women,dressed in traditional garb, are often to be seen riding the mares side saddle. It is well worth taking a holiday to ride either in Portugal or Spain (or both).

But take care in choosing the riding centre. This breed of horses is very sensitive and a light touch is needed to ride them.

That's me riding Sevillano on the beach - count the ears!

Have you spotted the horse racing alongside?

I am sitting on my fork so as not to interfere with the horse's movement.
I am over the horse's centre of gravity
The horse's nose is high by dressage standards

But Sevillano, an Andalucian gelding, is going as fast as he can - he is racing the hidden horse on his left.

My only need is to keep him straight and to tell him when to slow.

He was a very special horse.

OK finally!!

Please excuse the sub-par eq on my part. The first horse is the 6 year old who my mum has decided not to buy. The second horse is the first 5 year old we tried, no video of the second one though. I was told the 5 year olds did not actually steer or take any contact so that's why I'm in the round pen. I have vids of cantering etc.. but I thought I'd get these up first, and hopefully when we go back we'll get better video in the riding arena.
