  The Andalusian

andalusian

As the name describes, the Andalusian comes from this southern region in Spain which is close to North Africa.
This is one of the most elegant of horses.
Possessing tremendous presence, lofty paces, agility and a gentle, willing nature, it makes an excellent all-round riding horse and is particularly well-suited to the movements of the "high school" - haute ecole, taking part in all the fairs of its native Andalusia.
The Andalusian is not particularly tall but its compact, muscular frame is indicative of great strength. Height is about 15 - 15.2hh, colours, predominantly grey, including "mulberry" - a dappled, purplish grey and bay. It has a handsome head with broad forehead and large, kind eyes; fairly long, thick but elegant neck; long but well-sloped shoulders with well-defined withers; a strong, short body with a broad chest and well-sprung ribs; very broad, strong, rounded hindquarters with rather low-set tail; medium length limbs, clean cut and elegant but strong; long and very luxuriant mane and tail.
The Englishmen, William Cavendish, Duke of Newcastle, wrote in the seventeenth century that: "If well chosen it is the noblest horse in the world, the most beautiful that can be. He is of great spirit and courage and docile, has the proudest walk, the proudest trot, the loftiest gallop and is the lovingest and gentlest horse and fittest of all for a king in Day of Triumph".
