The Andalusian is a racy, elegant horse. Actually the breed is called "Pura razza espanola", in English "pure Spanish breed".
With its graceful appearance it enchanted nobles and kings. Therefore only few would guess that the Andalusian has long been used as a cavalry horse. Although it was always known for his courage and strength it is rather their elegance that distinguishes it.
It is a unique dressage horse and even dominates the famous leap into the air which is otherwise known only from the higher riding school of the Lipizzaner horse.
