Pura Raza Española (PRE) horses of The Hallelujah Horse Ranch
Pura Raza Española (PRE) horses of The Hallelujah Horse Ranch. This photo shoot came about a bit differently than most of my horse photo shoots materialize. I was on Facebook scrolling through my feed and came across a post with a tag from this ranch. I knew there was a Horse Ranch off of Hwy 89 in the Granite Dells area but I had no idea that there were beautiful Spanish Horses living there. I found the website and reached out to the woman running Hallelujah Horse Ranch and inquired about the horses and the opportunity to photograph them. Deborah Lindsay responded back quickly and we set a time to meet. The first meeting was just to scout out the location and meet the horses and meet Deborah. She was delightful and very kind and shared a few stories about how she came to be the owner of several Pura Raza Española horses. Deborah took the time to educate me about the breed as well.
What are pura raza española (PRE) Horses?
“The P.R.E. were for many years called Andalusians because this horse originated in Andalucia, Spain. The purity and brilliance of the P.R.E. is world renowned and coveted. The Spanish Miliary have kept the breeding records intact since the 1500’s. This is the oldest and most significant breed of horse in the world as it has spawned countless breeds and betters most.”
” The general temperament of the P.R.E. Horse is one of intelligence and tolerance and willingness. They have an unusual desire to please their owners and try very hard to do as requested. They are quick learners and bond with their owners to form a true partnership. Their heightened intelligence combined with their willingness to please makes training them quite easy.”
Beautiful horse photography of the Pura Raza Española (PRE) Horse
The Pura Raza Española (PRE) horse is known as the Horse of Kings. I have photographed the Pura Raza Española (PRE) horse before and feel very fortunate to add a few of these new images into a new Spanish Horse Art collection. A special featured collection will be released in the coming months, “Hallelujah Ranch Collection” containing a few of my absolute favorites turned into real works of Horse art.
