Andalusian Horse History Artricles

The Purebred Spanish Horse was mentioned in the writings of Homer and Xenophon. He was the war horse of the Carthaginians, Romans, Moors and Conquistadors of Mexico. This horse's bloodlines founded the American Quarter Horse, Appaloosa, Cleveland Bay, Connemara and many others.

Mounted on these Spanish Andalusians, like Cid Campeador's (El Cid's) Babieca, the Christian horsemen battled against the Arabs in the Reconquest. The Conquistadors on their Spanish Horses were seen as Centaurs, so at one were they with their horses during the conquest of Mexico and Peru.
