Their naturally fluid gaits and expressive movement make them a pleasure to work with. To find an Andalusian that is best suited for dressage, remember that your horse needs a conformation that will support suppleness, balance and strength.

A higher-level dressage horse must show suspension, cadence and elevation while being relaxed, submissive and supple to your aids. The horse’s croup should be elongated and slightly slanted, which will allow him to drop and create lightness on his forehand.

When more weight is put on the hindquarters, the shoulders of the horse can move freely and stretch out in front of him. The horse’s neck and back should be what I consider average and proportionate to the rest of his body.

If the back is too short, on the other hand, saddle-fitting will be an issue, and it’s much more likely that the saddle placement will block the horse’s shoulders. A horse that is more compact and correctly balanced over his back will be able to manage all parts of his body with more ease.

If his hips are too far away from his shoulders, it becomes increasingly difficult for him to be coordinated and able to isolate one group of muscles at a time. This will allow the horse to be able to stay light on his forehand and rock back onto his hindquarters.

For work related reasons I had to leave the United States and now live in Spain. I do advanced dressage and I had several horses at home as prospects that I left with one of the best trainers in the United States.
