I don't presently own an Andalusian but hope to breed for an Azteca in a couple of years. I have a very athletic, cutting horse bred (Peptoboonsmal) 6 y/o mare that I ride in Western Dressage and I'm presently researching Andalusian bloodlines and am on a learning curve about stallions for when I'm ready to breed her. The history of the Iberian horse is fascinating and I'm a fan of Doma Vaquera. I'm also an artist (sculptor) and did a bronze series called "The Spanish Horse Series". Iberian horses seem to me to be the perfect horse, extremely athletic and beautiful and I've heard they have wonderful temperaments. I live in California. :-)

We also have a young purebred gelding who needs to find his perfect person. Just put an ad up for him on Classifieds.  Priced at saddle horse price.

I have a sweet Azteca filly I need to rehome. She will be 3 this year and is ready to start lightly. Brisa is athletic with beautiful movement yet she has a calm temperment and lots of curiosity. She loves people and would make a wonderful family or kids horse yet has enough potential for an advnaced rider to enjoy! Anything from reining to dressage. She's been in OR at pasture for the last year. A great horse and for low cost. You cannot beat Andalusian crosses (unless of course you can afford a pure bred). I have two others and love them all.

This is my mob.  Andalusian cross is the big white boy.  To his left are his half sister and mom.  She is a full blooded classic Ute Mountain Mustang.  She came in foal with him from Monument Valley, Navajo Nation.  The old Spanish horses are still out there from 500 years ago.  The team roping craze with the quarter horses did not show up until about 10 years ago.  I am blessed with these ponies.  I am on a fixed income and love them so.

Hi Fellow Andalusian Lover! After a lifetime of teaching, training, riding and observing many breeds of horses I decided upon the PRE and Andalusian as my breed of choice. Currently I have a PRE stallion, Pavon whose bloodlines are old and true in Spain. In addition I have a purebred mare, a daughter of Pavon, who is black; a gray S/P mare; a tri-color Andy/Paint gelding and a black going gray Andy/Paint filly. Sheri if you are interested in the breed, try a half- or three-quarter Andalusian for starters. They are usually more reasonable in price, but many of them look almost identical to their Andy parent. All of mine, who are by Pavon, have wonderful temperaments, are eminently trainable, smart and sensitive, but not silly. They will become your best friends!

Hello everyone, Cheryl Gibson from south of Guelph, Ontario here. We have had Andalusians (both PRE and SP) for many years. I see Brenda Gordon commented that she has a Vasallo Grandaughter. We have a Vasallo grandson, Alado H, and when I visited Sr Cardenas I saw old Vasallo - our Alado, looks very like him. Also Quiromancia was my favourite mare of the Denhams.. what a gorgeous mare she was. Grandino was a regal and elegant stallion - he had a wonderful presence and was a very spiritually impressive horse. Lucky you, Brenda! I'm not very active on any site like Barnmice (not a facebooker or anything ) so may not be reading the list much but best to you all. Cheryl

hi again,
mari, i have been corresponding to S. Cardenas for a year, i asked for pictures of my mares dam and granddam who were from his stud farm.
i have a Vasallo granddaughter, and Granadino is her dad, Quiromancia is her mother .The greatest lines deserve good breeding. I am very happy with my;Pavon baby, see his pedigree.
if you want to have a beautiful foal consider breeding to Ellin Daum's stallion.

she is also on the web or here at barnmice.
Last year Senor Cardenas told me there would be no semen until after WEG.
I need to see if he is as big as Pavon, Ellin's stallion. i saw Fandango del Sol and Santiago at their home and am still shopping around. Will go to see Heroe MAC before next sprping.

would like to talk on the phone sometime
best to you

Sheri- There are a couple of rescues you might look into. They are kept very discreet. Contact the Foundation for the Pure Spanish Horse and inquire.You can net work your way from there.

I am in love with the breed. Someday I want to own one. Any thoughts on how a recreational rider like myself could buy one of these beautiful horses at a "recreational" price. p.s. I am in Canada
