Dear Friends

Welcome to the November Newsletter.  October just flew by for us, as I'm afraid did the newsletter, so I do apologise to those who were eagerly awaiting last month's edition.  The upside is that we have a bumper edition this month and we have many fantastic new horses for sale and we have spread our net even further in the quest to offer you the best Iberian horses available in the World. 


In this Issue:

  • November - a great time to buy youngstock
  • SICAB and Golega Horse Fairs - Spain and Portugal celebrate their treasured breeds
  • Horse of the Month
  • New Horses for Sale



November - A Great Time to buy Youngstock & Mares

November is the time all breeders have their doors open for sale of their youngstock.  This year's foals are weaned and ready to go, so you can have the pick of the crop and the very best bloodlines become affordable if you're prepared to take the risk and wait a couple of years.  Yearlings, two and three year olds can be still be bought at this year's prices before price's increase with their age next year.  For those with an interest in bloodlines, a keen eye and a speculative nature, buying a quality young horse can prove a significant investment, even despite all the risks associated with young horses, there is the potential to earn yourself a quality stallion and/or a healthy profit.  It also gives you the chance to nurture and bring on the type of horse you want and to discover how easy these horses are to train and back yourself.


The Autumn is also a fantastic time to buy mares in foal, effectively buying two horses in one and with only one transportation cost, no stud fee and the risks associated with sending your mare to stud removed, including whether she is in-foal or not.  We have many mares available in-foal to fantastic Calificado stallions (graded 'Elite' stallions), champion show winners or in-foal to stallions of special coats such as dun (buckskin) and black.  If you buy a mare in Spain, there is a wider choice of stallions for covering than anywhere else in the world.  We do not have many of them advertised on the website and this is because we think buying a mare is a little different to buying a stallion as the stallions are mainly ridden, there is a lot that you can discern about what you want in terms of training before you make a viewing trip for a riding horse.  Mares in Spain are seldom trained for riding.  With a mare, we can source to order in terms of colour, age and bloodlines and then find the right stud farm for you and invite you to view a few of them.  In our experience, the mare usually chooses you.


Please contact us if you are interested in buying mare or youngstock.

SICAB and Golega - Spain and Portugal celebrate their treasured breeds

The annual national horse fairs of Spain and Portugal are exciting celebrations of equestrian culture and inspiring demonstrations of how central the horse is to their culture.  The fairs last for days and exhibit the multitude of disciplines in which the dexterous Iberian horse can excel including dressage, doma vaquera (traditional cattle working/cowboy dressage), driving, showing and performing to music.  Wonderful local and seasonal food is on offer such as roasted chestnuts and young wine of the earth and sherry and port.  Stunning horses, traditional costume and music add to the colour and sensual richness of these spectacular events.  It would be very hard to leave these events without an Iberian horse addiction if you do not already harbour one.


Golega Fair, Portugal 2006 3-5th and 8th-12th November

Horse of the Month

With a name like Heroe CEN, he is born for fame and honour!  But that is not why this horse has made the horse of the month position, nor is it because of his beautiful jet black coat and stunning baroque looks, nor his exceptional bloodlines.  Heroe has made the horse of the month position because he is simply the best natured 3 year old stallion I have ever come across.  Only backed very recently, but going ever so quietly and willingly, this horse has the most trainable character.  The photos and video were taken after a week of storms in the Spain and it had actually been a complete downpour only minutes before I arrived.  When it rains in Spain, it really pours!  So, the horses had not had much exercise the previous few days, yet Heroe was quietly tacked up and ridden and eagerly cantered through the puddles without a question.  Thanks to the weather, the photos don't show this lovely stallion in all his glory.  At 16.2hh and 3 years old, this stallion is only going to get bigger, better and more beautiful!
