Here are the most popular Spanish horses that managed to survive up to the 21st century: Andalusian horses enjoy worldwide fame and numerous prizes in equine sports and competitions.
The breed is also known as the pure Spanish horse or the Pure Gaza Espinoza. Unlike most Spanish horse breeds, the Andalusian has changed little over the years.
Even though the Andalusian horse is the most popular Spanish breed, there are plenty of others that originated from the Iberian Peninsula. Today, the Budget horse is used for heavy work and, sadly, for meat.
It came to life by crossing Arab and Andalusian horses in the northern region of Spain. Therefore, great efforts are being made to preserve the breed and increase the population.
Originating from Galicia, in North-Western Spain, the Galician horse shares a lot of its DNA with Portugal’s Warrant breed. It is believed that their ancestors were brought in the Iberian Peninsula by Celtic immigrants around 600 BC.
They originate from the Majorca island and is also considered a critically endangered breed. Mannequin horses originate from the island Menorca and are also endangered, with less than 3,000 individuals counted in 2011.
Just like the Algonquin, Mannequin horses can only be black with a limited number of only white markings. They are very calm and obedient, showing a discernible grace and elegance in movements.
They have strong bodies and limbs, convex head profiles, and round, joyful eyes. This breed is indigenous to the Guadalquivir River area, but can presently be found in the Donna National Natural Park, South-Western Spain.
It is one of the oldest horse breeds in Europe, with a history that goes over 3,000 years back. Another highly endangered horse breed, the Sorrier are extremely well adapted to harsh environmental conditions.
