∟Horse Breeds A-Z: Andalusian"The Andalusian is right up there with the Arabian when it comes to purity & length of bloodline. Easily the grandfather of modern horse breeds, Andalusian blood influences almost every breed known today. The Andalusian horse is known by many different names including Iberian Saddle/ War horse, Jennet, Lusitano, Alter Real, Carthusian, Spanish Horse, Portuguese, Peninsular & Castilian. They are officially known as the Purebred Spanish Horse & have long been considered to embody perfection when it comes to horseflesh. Early in the 20th century breeding trends changed in Spain & the traditional Spanish animals lost even more footing. Since then they have made a slow comeback. The modern Andalusian wasn’t exported from the country until 1962 at which time they made their way to Australia & the Americas (again). During the 21st century this handsome breed is on the rise & continued growth is expected. Their popularity worldwide is undeniable & their history is entwined with that of the people who have kept their bloodlines alive.” -TheEquinestphotos [x] [x]
