a potted history

A (very brief) History of GBPRE

The Purebred Spanish horse has been represented in the UK since 1982 when the British Association for the Purebred Spanish Horse (BAPSH) was founded. Growing steadily over the years, in 2016 it was decided to split out the showing side of the association to form GBPRE.

Since its inception in 2016, GBPRE has managed the events, activities, competitions and promotion of the PRE and PRE-Fusion (Part Bred PREs), leaving BAPSH to concentrate on handling all aspects of registration for imports and British & Irish homebreds, changes of ownership, and passport updates.

BAPSH Ltd is a DEFRA approved UK Equine Passport office (DEFRA UELN 826003). They hold and operate the National Studbooks for Purebred Spanish Horses (Pura Raza Española or PREs), PRE Fusion Horses (PFH), Hispano-Arab Horses (HA), Spanish Spotted Saddle Horses (SSSH), Spanish-Norman Horses (SNH), and Albion Azteca Horses (AAH). BAPSH also looks after the needs of non-pedigree PRE-type and PRE Fusion-type horses without certified pedigrees (Andalusians) in Appendix A or B of the PRE Fusion Horse Studbook.
