Ah, I love Andalusians

When I went horse searching I really, really wanted to get one, but most were a bit out of my price range I did look at two- one who had a lovely temperament and was super sensitive but poorly conformed legs, and one who I actually took home on a trial and turned out to be in need of some serious ground training once she got away from her owner. I couldn't afford to send her to a trainer (nor should I have needed to!) for the price they were asking, so back she went!

I ended up with a half Andalusian, and I couldn't be happier! My equine dentist (who also breeds Andalusians) guessed his sire the first time she saw him, and verified that he got his fabulous temperament from him.

They sure move very interesting in the back. A very flat trot..

Love the second horse you get on :) G I think his name is.

Was it difficult to post on the first PRE horse? She didn't have much impulsion at first (which for me makes it burn to post to lol)

He was pokey that's for sure. They are usually ridden by a tall guy with spurs and two whips, so that was the guys excuse for the horse not actually going anywhere or staying between my aids at all. I really don't like male ridden horses for the most part, except Robert Dover and the like.
G (I call him "Peter" like Peter Pan :P) is the one we're most interested in. The boss is on holidays but as soon as we get an email back we want to try him again and vet him.

ETA the flat movement ontop and fancy on the bottom is why my mum want one - she has a tough time with the WB stride.

Very cool! I hope you guys get one!

These horses are gaining popularity again amongst the vaquero horsemanship crowd, or at least a QH cross. I have always wanted one! That and a Lippizanner....lol

Yes, anyone who loves and knows horses must think of owning an |Andalucian or a Lusitano but I have been told by several riders who work in Spain that the best horses are kept back for life in Spain. The Spanish military have a tight hold over which stallions and which progeny actually leaves Spain. The documentation is apparently strictly adhered to.
There is no reason why a Spanish horse cannot be driven up to the UK even
from Southern Spain - so long as one of the regular Iberian horse trucking
Is used.

I have also been told to visit the seller's premesis and to learn how the horse
Has been brought on and backed.
I would also buy a traditional Spanish hand made saddle.

I would no pretence as to being able to ride in the traditional haute ecole style
But seemingly I could learn the Doma Vaquera (way of the countryside) techniques.

What an idea - that would be a memory of a lifetime for sure.

Love what you had to say, Anabel! I have been involved with Lusitanos for over ten years, and your assessment is absolutely correct. I also ride other breeds but always find myself saying "he/she isn't a Lusitano but I still like him/her". I will agree that they aren't for beginners as they are precision oriented and don't tolerate gross motor skill mistakes, and/or the "thinking process" of beginners (or neanderthol riders) Ha! The responsiveness and lightness is inherent unless shut down.
