Andalusian's are powerful horses, with mighty chests and strong hindquarters. There is a minimum height restriction for breeding stock, which is divided into “qualified” and “elite”.
Breeders who sell an Andalusian of the elite type have very strict standards of height and quality. Iron Age tribes, medieval monks, and the ruling houses of Europe have all had a part to play in the development of the breed.
It was originally thought that Andalusian's were the descendants of wild horses that had been in the Iberian Peninsula for thousands of years, though the latest DNA research suggests this is not the case. Carthage, the powerful Phoenician state in North Africa, had horses of high quality and traded with the Namibian Berber population who were some of the most formidable cavalries in the ancient world.
These are probably the origin of the genetic links between the North African Barb horse and the Andalusian. Andalusia has always been a diverse region, showing the influence of many people, from Vandals and Visigoths to Arabs and Greeks, all with their own outstanding equestrian traditions.
By medieval times, horse breeding was one of the great successes of Cartesian monasteries of Spain. Beautiful, powerful and intelligent, Andalusian's are equally accomplished as working horses or media stars.
In Spain, they have traditionally been used to draw carriages, to work with bulls, and to take part in equestrian spectacles and displays of skill such as the Garcia (lance-work) of the Spanish vaqueros. The famous Lipizzaner of the Spanish Riding School are the descendants of Andalusian horses, and both are Baroque breeds.
