Articles about the Traditions of the Spanish Horse

According to some Spaniards and authors the Spanish horse, or Andalusian, evolved on the Iberian Peninsula and is a direct ancestor of horses originating there in Paleolithic times. It shouldn’t surprise you that Spaniards have an intense pride for their horses and give no credit to other breed influences. This pride is reflected in their heritage and in the way they talk about their horses on websites such as "Horse Sense" which quoted:

An Andalusian man without his horse is like a matador without a cape. He feels stripped of an essential part of his identity that has been formed over the centuries. It is part of his life, his work, his status, his culture, his earthly possessions ... his horse is central to his very being.
