Ibero vs. Espaņola

To all you breed "experts" out there:

I have been trying for the last 1.5 years to figure out, in English, what the names of these two breeds are: Ibero & Espaņola (meaning Spanish).

The options I come up with are:

Andalusion must refer to one of them

Lipizzaner maybe?

Not sure what the other options might be.

I'm going to ask the groom over at the barn today too what the exact differences in confirmation history etc. are, bu t not sure he'll know. I am in Nicaragua and those are the two types of horses here. I spent a year looking for warmbloods but can't find any, and am wondering if I have a chance at a jumping horse by mixing one of these two breeds with a thorougbred.

Thanks!

Not sure if anyone is interested in this one, but I found out today that an Espaņola is a pure Andalusian and an Ibero is a mix of Espaņola and either quarter horse or a thoroughbred.

I'm learning lots everyday...horses are an endless learning experience.

I guess that brings me back to my other question. What do you guys know about jumping ability (I'm not talking Grand Prix or anything) from an andalusion/thoroughbred mix. I would imagine this could produce an incredible dressage horse, but not sure about jumping.

Anyone?
