The History of the P.R.E. Andalusian Horse by Doreen Haggard

Out of his romantic past, he comes. He has carried kings and conquered continents. He was painted by the greatest painters of all our times. Poets have sung his name aloud in a thousand voices. His handsome beauty is unmatched. In the entire world, no horse has stepped with such pride. He is all of these things and much more. And for some glorious miracle, today he comes to us unchanged. He is the pure Andalusian horse; he is the noble one.

I first started writing in 1997, The Bourke Parakeet and I am still the only one to have written on this bird today. I have had a long break and now I have made a comeback with this new book, The History of the P.R.E Andalusian Horse. They are one of the oldest pure-breed horses of today and well known to the world, as I am again the only one to write their history in a form of a book.

My inspiration was to write something different from all the horse books you can buy; not about riding or how to keep a horse as there is so many out there today, but to write something about the history on the horse I admire. The book explains all about what they have been used for, where they came from, where they have gone over the years, and what they are today, with the events of their Spanish life. My book puts the Andalusian under the spot light; as they stand out from many other breeds, this book will sell very well, especially in Spain.

It was back in 1995 when I first came to Spain, and had the pleasure to ride the Andalusian horse. Some years later, I decided to move to Spain (2004) and it was not long before I was back riding the famous Andalusian horse.

Because of all the time I had spent with this beautiful horse, I then knew I had to write this book. It was not just about the passion of riding them; I wanted to find out all their history, and so I did. Now there is a book that focuses on this delightful, colourful breed. I have brought a fresh approach to the history of the Andalusian horse, together with the many full-colour photographs that illustrate the text, which has resulted in a book that will be appreciated by horse lovers.

When I moved to Spain in 2004 from the U.K., the only place to head for was, of course, inland in the south of Spain to Andalusia, where I could find the pure Andalusian horse. I have been riding horses for forty-three years, so after coming to Spain and meeting the fantastic Andalusian horse, I definitely wasn’t going to stop. Now with my book, I can share them with the entire world. I enjoy writing about my interests; it makes my interest so much more enjoyable.

The book will tell you their history, and what they have been used for since cave times, as their history started on the cave walls. The most colourful and enjoyable part of this book I have to say is looking at the typical Andalusian Spanish life.

The history of the Andalusian will go on, my Spain, my horses, my friends.

  5. Hi Everyone
    I have a new book out for all you horse lovers, on the Andalusian Horse, it has many beautiful colorful pictures’. I visited many parts of the south of Spain, for my information to put this book together. I would love you all to give me some feed back, on what you think of this book.
    There are so many books on the market today, on how to ride a horse, and how to look after one. I thought I would do some thing different. I focused on one of the oldest pure bred horses in the world, The Andalusian.
    I looked into there history, which started on cave walls in 5,000bc. Before I new it, I was writing this book. You can purchase this book on Amazon.com or.uk, or look inside the book before you buy, on the link below.
