 Our satisfied clients' are our best recommendation

Spanish Horse Specialists is owned and operated by Sophie Carver. Sophie is committed to offering you the most professional, personal and successful service available to help you find your dream Spanish horse. With many years of experience living in Andalucia where she owned, bred and trained Spanish horses, Sophie is very keen to share her knowledge, experience and passion for Spanish horses with you. Our service does not stop at the point of sale, it extends from sourcing the right horses to pre-purchase viewing and examination to exportation and we are happy to offer post-sales support. Many of our clients have become good friends and we love hearing their success stories and progress. Our clients' words (see References) and their actions through repeat business are our best recommendation and our motivation for doing the best job we can.

"Thank you so much for everything.  Your service is very professional. You truly went above and beyond!"

Sophie travels all over Spain and Portugal searching for good quality Iberian horses of varying levels of training.  Even with all the resources available, finding a quality healthy horse can be a difficult and time consuming process and at worst it can be an expensive, depressing and fruitless search. Sophie does this legwork for you. Experience has taught us that good horses come from good people. We source horses directly from respected breeders, private individuals and professional riders we know; we do not work with dealers and we think we are unique in this respect. We have developed exclusive relationships with many of the best breeders and trainers in Spain, as well as with some less well known stables, so that we can offer horses of the highest quality, in excellent condition and trained in the classical way, from youngstock to Grand Prix dressage horses to our discerning client list.  

"Sophie took great interest in my personal wishes and ambitions and truly sought the real match in the horse."

We are based in the UK and do very regular sourcing and viewing trips to Spain, so please do not hesitate to contact us anytime and we would be happy to discuss details of your search and to answer any of your questions.

Committed to Social/Equine Responsibility

We love our work, the horses and the people.  The sheer pleasure of viewing the most beautiful horses in the World, creating a unique partnership between horse and new owner and knowing that they will be happy together.  However, we cannot forget that there are many less fortunate people and horses who we should support.


At Spanish Horse Specialists, we are committed to putting something back into the equine world that is our passion.  We support the following charities in their important and wonderful work:


Spanish Society for the Protection of Equines


UK Riding for the Disabled
