Pure Spanish Andalusian (PRE) Mares - Pura Raza Española

Fancy and Qjin

Our top Andalusian broodmares are proven genetically and by their performance. Over the years we've raised many nice Andalusian mares that have gone on to be champions, riding horses, and excellent broodmares.

"The breed is the most magnificent possession your Majesty has anywhere in the world"  ~ Diego Lopez de Haro to King Phillip II of Spain, 1578.

Breeding Philosophy

We strive for quality, not quantity. Anyone can breed to the best stallions in the world, we know it’s the mares that make the difference.

Are you looking for that special Andalusian dressage horse, calm broodmare, gorgeous stallion, or equine friend? We recommend that you go DOWN IN AGE, rather than DOWN IN QUALITY and consider one of our premium foals.

At Skyhorse Ranch Texas, we stand above our competition in providing value. You'll get more for you money with any of our foals. Why? Our breeding priority is 1) Beauty, 2) Movement, and 3) Versatility. 

I believe that beauty is the most important quality when breeding any horse but especially one meant to be the horse of your dreams. With beauty comes balance.  

Movement should always be a part of the package - it should be balanced front and behind with a short-coupled, strong loin. 

Versatility allows us to provide a variety of horses for a variety of riders - versatility can only be accomplished by outcrossing and understanding the lines.

A Special Note on our Breeding Stock

All of our producing Andalusian mares (and any stallions we use) are approved by Spain as breeding stock (PRE – Pura Raza Espanola – purebred Spanish). To be considered a “true PRE” of Spain, there is a special registration process you must go through. This process (handled by ANCCE of Spain and coordinated by USPRE in the U.S.) requires that both parents of the horse are already registered in Spain, foals must be DNA-d, microchipped, and “written into the books” (inscriptions), and adult horses must be physically inspected by a representative from Spain (revision) prior to being considered for breeding.

Due to the expense and logistics of this process, as well as political reasons, not all Andalusian horses in the U.S. have these Spanish papers. Some do not even qualify to recieve them. As heritage breeders, we feel its important that our mares and stallions are registered with Spain. As a result, the foals we produce are eligible for registration in Spain, as well as in the U.S. Alternative registrations (all U.S-based) include IALHA (registers purebreds, half-breds and Spanish-Portuguese crosses), PRE-Mundial (conducts inspections and uses similar terminology), and Association of the Foundation Andalusian Horse (broke-off from IALHA, registrations similar to IALHA).
