What do you think your Andalusian or Andalusians in general are most suitable for?

I have attempted several disciplines with my horses. I grew up riding in different styles and disciplines. In Spain, PREs are used for everything as far as I can tell. The PRE over there is like the AQHA quarter horse over here - lots of them doing lots of different things.

In general, the Andalusian is built for dressage ( born with a neck, born with balance, born with willingness to perform). They are also built as light carriage horses (some have more knee action than others, look flashy in carriage) although few of us travel by that means anymore Rolling Eyes

They can be used for ranch work, but they tend to roll up and back (ie their origins as bullfighting and bull-avoiding horses) rather than get down and low. An Andalusian should have a medium to high neck carriage, so they don`t "get down" naturally. or least they SHOULDN`T! so naturally are not suited for "traditional" western disciplines that were developed in the US for docile cattle and as a result horses developed a low head carriage.

They are excellent trail horses - smooth to ride, responsive, collectable. Not really built for endurance, too fleshy for the most part. Not built for racing.
B Excellent flashy parade horses - although this pasttime is not that common. This is how the breed became popular in Spain, for the royals and people of fashion to ride. To this day they hold a big yearly event called the Feria in different towns, large one in Andalucia. Hundreds of riders show up in their best outfits.

Extremely well-suited for pleasure riding and other activities - but a little out of the normal person`s price range for pleasure riding.

Extremely well-suited for breeding - stallions are fairly straight forward to handle, mares devoted, foals fast learning.

One of my favorite myths or stories about the horse...The king declared that all GENTLEMEN would ride stallions. After several gentlemen were dumped by said stallions (they weren`t great riders, afterall, just had money)...the king delcared "All stallions shall be rideable by gentlemen". And thus the country began breeding for gentleness and flash in the mounts.

Therefore, any discipline that requires gentleness and flash in one package is what the PRE is made for. In the Peruvian and Paso fino horses breeds this characteristic is known as "brio".
