From the beginning of their history, the Spanish Horse has been used for both riding and driving, and was among the first horses used for classical dressage. Today, they can turn their hoof to anything; be it hacking around the countryside, or full-blown competition.
Whether you’re new to dressage or riding at Grand Prix, we have something for you, including our British Dressage league & Copa ANCCE qualifiers.
Our annual breed show held at Hartpury in July maybe the main event, but there are plenty of local & county shows with foreign breed classes.
We support members that enjoy other aspects of riding including show jumping & eventing, working eqjuitation, western pleasure riding.
These horses never stop learning, so to help you stay ahead, we support a number of training events & clinics throughout the year.
The GBPRE annual show is a showcase for the Spanish, and other Iberian horses in the UK. Held at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire, it is usually a 3-day show, from Friday to Sunday at the end of July, or the beginning of August. We have a huge range of classes and events on offer: from official ANCCE showing classes, to dressage, working equitation, horse agility, a tapas night and many other things. It’s an amazing weekend and whether you bring a horse or just come to watch you’ll have a great time.
A number of our members are stud owners. If you are thinking of breeding, search our Stud Directory for the ideal stallion to breed to your mare. Young stock are often available too.
