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
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.
