The biggest influence on the world's all horse breeds has the Arabian, but not without the support of the powerful North African Berber horse, which, in turn, gave rise to the Spanish Horse. Here you will find 18 colts and two geldings. Most are crosses between the Arabian and Berber horse.
The center tries to have strong, lively and brave horses. The horses are approximately 150-160 cm (59-63 in) at the withers. There are also two cute pony stallions along with two b-ponies that looks like mini-andalusians. They stand in the same stall, but when let out into the pasture together, they fight like two playful boys.
You will notice how well-managed the horses are based on the way they react to each other. Although they are stallions, they can be ridden close to each other without getting irritated. All horses are ridden in the English style and with English saddles and bridles.
