Spanish Stallions Horse Photos

This photo gallery of Spanish Stallions is composed of Andalusian Horses and Lusitano Horses.

According to the Horse Channel website: “The Andalusian, also known as the Pure Spanish Horse or PRE (Pura Raza Española), is a horse breed from the Iberian Peninsula, where its ancestors have lived for thousands of years.  Pure Bred Spanish (Andalusian) horses come from Spain and are known for their intelligence and good nature.  Horses on the Iberian Peninsula, which today includes Spain and Portugal, were simply called Iberian Horses in 1578 when Portugal was annexed to Spain and all the horses on the Peninsula were considered Spanish. The traditional uses of Iberian breeds were for dressage displays, cavalry and bullfighting.

The Lusitano and Andalusian share the same characteristics with differences stemming from lineage or usage only. For instance, a horse bred for cattle work might have a different type than one bred for dressage. The Lusitano, however, has been bred to have a more traditional convex profile than the Andalusian.”

When I was offered the chance to photograph these six Spanish Stallions I was more than enthused.  It was another opportunity to photograph horses side by side with Tamara Gooch and also to photograph horses with long manes and as horse photographers like to call it..”Great hair”.  Horses with great hair means they have long flowing manes and tails and forelocks.  These horses also were a variety of colors.  There were black, bay, white and gray horses as well as a buckskin colored horse.
