Anyone ride/own/love Andalusians? I have a 9 y.o. Andi named Cadbury who is the love of my life! He is wonderful. I was just wondering if there are any other Andi lovers around here =)
Here is my boy with my 6 year old nephew aboard!

ahhh Andalusians......drowning in drool over here. There's a 6 year old andalusian stud at one of the many barns I'm at frequently and he's the sweetest, most beautiful horse ever. They are soo beautiful with gorgeous movements. I'm an Andy lover.

They are stunning. I'd love one but i wouldn't have a clue about riding it! Dressage is not my forte lol!

They are beautiful though

I was given a horse that looks just like yours. His coggins said Andalusian but every one said no way because he is too small. About 15 hs and his weight is around 900#. I have him on a weight gain subplement, his ribs show. His temperment is wonderful but his trot is horid. Best trail horse I have ever had. Do you know what the norm is for them in height & weight

Do any of you show Andalusians at breed shows? Not just in dressage?

I will be getting an Andalusian soon, and I was thinking about showing him in halter classes at breed shows close by.

I used to show Saddlebreds and there were certain requirements about their mane, tail, tack, and your clothes. I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the presentation requirements for Andalusians.

ironrockranch- andy's height usually is from about 15.2 hh- 16.2, so that's normal.... i dunno the normal weight... but that sounds too low for a 15 hh horse, so i assume once you get him in shape he'll be average, whatever that is haha

i love andy's too! especially aztecas... half andy half qh!
