'MID PLEASURES AND PALACES THOUGH WE MAY ROAM, BE IT EVER SO HUMBLE THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME.
Bred by royalty, the Pura Raza Española or  Pure Spanish
Horse was the horse of Europe's elite. The history of the
pure Spanish horse reaches back centuries. This calm,
noble horse who has carried kings and soldiers, danced in
the courts of Europe and faced the fierce bulls is today,
still living art. Their intelligence, beauty and athletic ability
change everyone who comes in contact with them.


Many hours can be spent researching this magnificent
breed but I think that Juan Llamas sums it up best ...
.                  ..... only ask,
 and he will weave a spell
 to light the dark recesses of your being,
 spinning around you
 a web of sweet delights.
 He will be your children's playmate;
 a child himself, he'll do no harm.
 He'll pardon like no other
 your omissions, errors, thoughtless handling.
 His back, a throne of feathers,
 will bear you smoothly at the trot and gallop.
 He'll go where others dare not.
 He'll stand firm
 where others flee in terror.
 You'll discover that the pirouette is easy,
 that a rein back can go on for ever,
 that you need not be a great rider
 to perform airs above the ground.
 At the spur's light touch
 he'll take flight with the wind,
 bearing you safely through the air
 laden with long-forgotten fragrance.
 With him, the distant mountains will be clearer,
 brighter the light of the stars,
 the trilling of the nightingale more joyful,
 sweeter the gurgling of the streams.
 And at the last you'll understand why he was e'er
 the chosen one of kings.
