Top Quality Spanish Horse Breeding
Why Do We Breed PRE Horses (Andalusians)?
The PRE Horse has been bred for centuries for its unique beauty and amazing temperament. The characteristic features are the high-set neck and expressive head, the short back and rounded croup, the refined leg and magnificent mane and tail--have defined the standard for equine beauty since the Renaissance.The PRE Horse is unmatched in its trainability, and sensibility, gaits and forward movement. The PRE Horse is the world's newest developing sport horse breed. Demand for well-bred and trained PREs exceeds the supply in America . PRE horses represent the most sought-after traits of the modern Dressage horse : a trot with suspension, freedom of the shoulder with knee action in front, a canter supported by a powerful hind-quarters with flexibility of the croup and a natural capacity to carry the weight underneath the body and a clear four-beat walk.The style of movement always associated with Iberian horses has now become desired by FEI-level riders and pursued by warmblood breeders.
