Product description

ENGLISH-SPANISH. LANGUAGE.After the release of two splendid books entitled "Historical and Current Stallions PRE Horse," and "The Spanish Horse: All About the PRE Breed," Messidor Equestrian Editions, offers this third book: "Spanish Horse Culture." Despite their majestic history, in the late eighties and early nineties of the last century, the Spanish Horse only represented a very small portion of Spanish equestrian culture. Converting their myths and legends into history, closely linked to the western area of Andalucía, and making Sevilla and Jerez their geographical landmarks; at the same time when thier image (their manes and tails) had become their truest value. This was because, beyond the morphological contests, few people very, very few...practiced or knew the contents of the High School. They were, to put it in words, a symbol of aesthetic expression and social distinction that was paraded in fairs and pilgrimages, and whose usefulness barely went further than what was a visual manifestation. However, behold, in the nineties there was a revolution in the world of the Purebred Spanish Horse. A revolution of which the Royal Andalucían School of Equestrian Art with its founder and director, Álvaro Domecq Romero, greatly contributed, but without forgetting the ever continuing efforts of Cría Caballar and the Yeguada Militar of Jerez. The realization that something was in motion on the surface and that many things were profoundly changing occurred at the Olympic Games in Atlanta, USA, in 1996, where the horse Evento, and Escuela Real rider Ignacio Rambla, achieved a feat that automatically became the flag and reference of the possibilities of the breed. Those Olympics changed the history and course of the Spanish Horse, discovering unexplored skills and deploying a range of possibilities for the PRE horse that have finally opened the doors of what we are now calling in this book, the Culture of the Spanish Horse. JAIME MORENO.
