Argentine Criollo?

I was at a reining show this weekend, and there was one of these there. I wish I had taken a picture. He was beautiful! I have never seen anything quite like him. Lovely bay roan, very stocky, stood about 14h, with HUGE mane and tail. Moved well, did all the manuevers well.

I had never really seen or heard of these before, and from googling, it would look like they are pretty difficult to find...

Has anyone else seen one? THoughts?

Heard of them yes, pretty rare breed from what I understand, and often used in polo. Very beautiful!

Actually, they are not very often used in polo. They are mainly used in herding cattle and cart pulling. The Polo horse is a breed in itself.

Tell me about it! I've got two JRTs right now. Super independent and high-energy, but excellent barn dogs!
