Equestrian Shows In Spain
When visiting Spain there is a fantastic choice of attractions and excursions to choose from, be it land or sea based and one of the most spectacular events to attend are equestrian shows in Spain. Originally used in warfare, as work horses and as a means of transport, the Pure Spanish Horse was unified as a breed in the 16th century by King Philipe 11. Cave paintings dating back to 5,000 BC have been found in the caves of Canforos de Penarubia and Altamira in Northeastern Spain depicting horses with body types very similar to today’s horse. The Pure Spanish Horse is considered to be one of the national treasures of Spain and the breeding and training of them has been handed down from father to son through many generations. The horse is used in a range of competitive driving events and dressage competitions. So, for an alternative excursion from sun, sea and sangria, why not treat the family to one of the wonderful equestrian shows in Spain.
