Hi Susana - you really have done your research. I had never heard of this line of PREs. These are PREs right? Not Andalusians? I am not well versed in the Spanish breeds, but I was told that the Spanish do not recognize the Andalusian Breed.

"The story of the Stud", by Mr. Jaime Guardiola Domínguez

The stud of the Heirs of Don Salvador Guardiola Fantoni is the result of an old family tradition that was centered in the town of Utrera (Sevilla) and as a livestock activity, and mainly breeding.Its earliest origins, we are talking about-documented origins date back to 1690. In that year, partition of property of Don Francisco Jiménez-Fowler-grandfather in 8th grade to their current owners, among the cattle he had in his farm "The Algarabejo" already mentioned "Thirty-five yeguasde collar, thirteen foals and fillies going for two years, the horse that is a father and knows horses, and yegüerizo blazed. " Subsequently, there are many testimonies that confirm the status of the family livestock. In 1778 Don José Jiménez-Fowler and Arias de Saavedra-great grandson of the above-makes donation to his daughter Isabel Jimenez and Ramirez de Leon Fowler of "Nineteen cattle mares of my livestock, several hairs and age, consisting in the last study performed by the council of this town of Utrera." 

Already in the second half of the nineteenth century was Don Juan de los Rios and Matthew, husband of Doña Consolacion Ferreras Jiménez-Fowler and two great-great-Villamisar-current-owners who gave a decisive impetus to the stud that his wife had inherited family. In the book "Dictionary and Equestrian Sport" written in 1881 by Mr. Federico Huesca, a member of the Society of Equine Breeding Development in Spain and one of the best authorities in the matter, stating that: "Don Juan of livestock Rivers deserves singular attention as well as being one of the largest in Andalucia brings together the strength of the warhorse agility and elegance of the chair, all over Spain are the products of this breed, which has improved site with constant crossof herds in Retamales Viada Jimenez Moreno, de Arcos and the former Zapata, now Don Vicente Romero. If the exposures are horses of this breed is the opposite that is owned to all sorts of exhibitions

The hair predominates thrush, also sold some brown, black and alazanes.Esta Winter livestock grazing on the vast and magnificent meadows that have in terms of Utrera Los Palacios y Alcalá de Guadaira and in the summer in the stubble of farmhouses that M. de los Rios holds in the above terms." 

Upon the death of Don Juan de los Rios in 1901, a very important part of his stud of a clear-Carthusian-was at the hands of his granddaughter, Dona Consolacion Fantoni de los Rios, Countess of Líbar Jimera and wife of Don Salvador Guardiola Sunyer , having on his farm "Pinganillo" half of sixty mares, whose products were aimed in large part-as was customary at that time, the various agricultural tasks. 

His name was entered in the Stud Book, 1914, owned a horse called "Miss" by 1'64 in height, which stood out for being an excellent player and also won several awards, one granted to a lot of mares, at the Exhibition held in Seville in 1929. His son Don Salvador Guardiola Fantoni, pursued the same passion for horse breeding Purebred Spanish, acquired in 1943 a lot of mares to Don Roberto Osborne: "Liron", "candid", "Campanera", "Gavineta ',' Gitana, "" joyful, "" Playful, "" Javelin "," Italy "," Jamaica "," hilarious "," Lizard "," Limonera "... which together with those he already had, from his parents, became the basis of its holding, curiously located in the same farmhouse where his great-grandfather was: Pinganillo and Valcargado, among other property located on the road to Isla Menor and acquired specifically for this purpose: The Isleton. 

Very soon gained popularity the stud of Don Salvador Guardiola Fantoni, which won several awards in Ganado Selecto Exhibition held during the April Fair of Seville in 1944 and 1945, also obtaining many trophies to his death in 1972. Once he disappeared, was his son James, who already in his father's life had shared with him the address of the stud-who took charge of it, assisted in his responsibilities by his brother Luis (Champion of Spain and Harassmentdemolition) and having very present guidelines at the time that marked both his father and his brother Salvador, rejoneador died tragically in a run held in Palma de Mallorca in 1960 - for the selection and breeding of the Pure Spanish Horse. 

From then until today, the herd has been steadily on the rise, getting the prize for the best farm in Seville in 1991, 1992 and 1994 as well as diplomas from the head of breeding for quality products 1979 and 1991, selling both stallions and mares and foals all over Spain and exported to many countries, mainly in Latin America. 

Among the many examples of this herd that have received awards, could be highlighted as follows: 

-CENTELLA V, Champion of Spain. Sevilla, 1984. Trophy Gold Medal of the board of Andalusia and the Real Maestranza.

Hi Muriel,

I am happy to see you here, saw your stallion some years ago on a CD.  Do you have him posted on youtube?

  You did a marvelous job with the Fiesta Midwest.  Hope to see more from you and your beautiful Soberbio.


I was reading the ANCCE site and noticed the symbols have changed on some of the pedigrees displayed.  I talked about that with Jennifer Stewart, Royal Horse Farms, and learned that when someone buys the rights to a brand that the display for the horses pedigree can change.  It seems a great loss, if the historical background we are looking for is the breeders symbol and it is changed.  I will send information or a link to it from my notebook with horse names from Guardiola line. 


Do you have any information about the changes I just mentioned? 

I personally only hold value in registration of the PRE with the ANCCE as they have high standards and verify lineage. 


I think Fuego XII gave the breed a great boost in the USA, saw his performance and the crowds reaction.

 Hi there to the person inquiring about the Guardiola line of the PRE! I assure you the Guardiola lines are still very popular and are included in some of the top bred PRE horses today! I am the proud owner of the PRE stallion SOBERBIO XII, who is by the Guardiola stallion EBANISTO, Champion of Spain and Grand Prix dressage competitor. I copied this description for your information, from my website where I have information regarding my stallions ancestry (his dam was Escalera). I am happy to speak to anyone with regard to breeding/importing PRE's!

The following is a brief historical description of the GUARDIOLA Stud:

Created by Mr. Salvador GUARDIOLA Fantoni in 1943 with animals from the Roberto Osborne Stud Farm in Estepa: founding stock included 2 groups of mares and 3 stallions from the "pure bit" bloodline (Bocado line). The actual stud farm facilities are found in the country estates of El Pinganilo in Utrera and Las Isletones, in the middle of the marshlands of the Guadalquivir River. Horses include those that have won awards CENTELLA V Spanish Champion, CAMELA Spanish Champion. They have also won Best Stud Prizes in Seville and Malaga."

The Guardiola bloodlines I believe may come directly from a particular region in Spain (not sure which) that is why this blood line is very rare in the U.S. It may be an old blood line that is no longer bred.

I suggest you e-mail the ANCCE (Asociaion Nacional de Criadores de Caballos de Pura Raza Espanola). They have website.

The Iberian horses (Portuguese and Spanish) have very old bloodlines attached to these horses.

I have not heard of this bloodline, but then again, like I said, they are a very old breeds.

he is stunning- how old is he?


Comment by Daniëlle Meyboom on November 26, 2011 at 2:08pm

Maybe he's indeed a little bit to fat. When you see them daily you don't see it that well anymore. And he sure is lovely!
