Pure Bred Spanish Horses on Show in Seville 3

Spanish Thoroughbreds 2013

This is the horsiest week of the year in Seville as they host the XXIII edition of the International Salon of the Purebred Spanish Horse 2013. (Salón Internacional del Caballo de Pura Raza Española, SICAB). This breed has traditionally been known as the “caballo andaluz,” “the Andalusian horse,” and there is now a movement to restore that name. The origins of this wonderful animal date from the misty annals of pre-Roman Spain. Today the world census numbers some 180,000 examples, resident in more that 50 countries. This annual horse show has become Seville’s most important yearly event after the April Fair and Holy Week and horse lovers come from around the world to see and participate in it. 

Here’s the link to the SICAB photo album in yesterday’s El Mundo newspaper:
