Widely preferred in Spain for their combination of the Spanish horses
courage, movement, and unflappable temperament with the Arabian
heart, endurance, and ruggedness; the Hispano-Árabe is especially
prized in Spain for Doma Vaquera riding and for the demanding life
of the working cattle horse on the vast unfenced plains of Andalusia.
These horses are capable of simply breathtaking displays of harmony
between horse and rider. To gain an understanding of the possible
relationship of horse and rider the following links to video of these
horses in action.
