About Andalusians

About Andalusians

The Andalusian horse, also known as the Pure Spanish Horse or, in Spain, the Pura Raza Espaņola, is a breed of horse developed in Spain. More specifically, the Andalusian was first bred in the provinces of Cadiz, Seville, and Miedina Sidonia in Andalusia, the southern region of Spain. The Andalusian was the most famous horse breed in Europe until the creation fo the thoroughbred breed, and remains a very popular breed to this day.

Andalusian stallions and geldings stand at an average height of about 15.1 1/2 hands at the withers, while mares' heights average at about 15 1/2 hands. Stallions and geldings typically weigh about 1,130 pounds, while mares are proportionately lighter at an average weight of about 910 pounds. In Spain, restrictions on the minimum height of a registered Andalusian mandate that an Andalusian gelding or stallion be 15 hands high and a mare be 14.3 hands high to be registered.

The Andalusian has a powerful yet elegant build. It has a medium-length head, straight nose, and large, expressive eyes. Its shoulders are muscular and low and rounded at the back, and its legs are strong and of a moderate length. In color, the majority of Andalusians are gray, but an Andalusian can be any of a myriad of colors, including bay, black, chestnut, palomino, or dun. The Andalusian's mane and tail have thick, silken hair.

The Andalusian is gentle and intelligent, and can be high-spirited. It is quite docile in nature and accustomed to working and learning quickly, making it a fairly easy horse to handle.

About 12% of Andalusians belong to a sub-type known as Carthusian, or, in Spanish, Cartujano. Carthusian horses, first developed in the 18th century, centuries after the Andalusian, are held to be the purest line of Andalusian horse, and have slight physical differences from non-Carthusian Andalusians.

The Andalusian has historically been used both driving and riding, and was well-known throughout history as an excellent racing breed. Because of its athleticism and speed, the Andalusian has also been used as a cavalry horse by Spain and Portugal. Today, the Andalusian is a popular breed in horse shows and, for aesthetic reasons, is widely used in film.
