PRE Andalusian Mares
PRE Andalusian mares at the CavalReal stud farm come from lines for strength, movements and functionality. Their offspring typically have a good conformation for sport, with strong legs and backs, as well as an excellent mentality.
In the selection process, we look for a strong back, good withers, strong legs and tendons. We also want to see a good overall conformation for strength, and movement.
Selected for their excellent pedigrees, good size, movement and character, our brood mares are kind, generous and very easy to handle.
We breed with mares that have three good gaits. Typically, most purebred Spanish horses would have a good trot, but be lacking in quality of movements of both canter or walk. We look for suspension, extension, and a forward-moving knee that modern dressage requires.
We do not have any winging or dishing in our horses. This is a fad that was at one point a fashionable movement defect of the Spanish horse and that you will still find in many lines of breeding.
To guarantee that they possess the physical and mental characteristics of good sport horses, our broodmares are ridden.

Hechizo VG (Joyero Salvatella x Venezolana II, b. Velasco Gonzales), is a mare from the Centella V and Lebrijano III lines. Of Guardiola origins, Hechizo VG is the best mover of the CavalReal stud. In the photo she is only three years old. She received top grades from her dressage trainers during her two years of being ridden. Trainers would especially comment on the quality of her movements in all three gaits, her willingness to learn and the ease with which she would absorb and integrate new knowledge. Age in photo: 3 years
