MAJOR EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF A THE PURE SPANISH HORSE ("P.R.E.") :
INSCRIPTION: At age One (1) the P.R.E. foal is examined by a Certified FPSH Veterinarian who has completed a course in this breed of horse. The Vet pulls samples for DNA testing at the UC Davis in California. Every facet of this little foal's coat and markings are noted for future reference. The little P.R.E. gets his micro chip and usually the foal is freeze branded at this time as well.
P.R.E. : Pura Raza Espanola means The Pure Race in Spanish. The P.R.E. were for many years called Andalusians because this horse originated in Andalucia, Spain. The purity and brilliance of the P.R.E. is world renowned and coveted. The Spanish Miliary have kept the breeding records intact since the 1500's. This is the oldest and most significant breed of horse in the world as it has spawned countless breeds and betters most. The P.R.E.'s purity and faithfulness to genetic honesty is unmatched. The original Mustang was simply a P.R.E. Horse, brought to the new world by the Conquistadors, that got loose. Darn, no tie racks!
The glorious P.R.E. is world renowned as the Horse of Kings and, in these days, also, Movie Stars such as William Shatner, Madonna, Suzanne Summers to name a few. The reasons the P.R.E. is such a magnificent animal is his unmatched beauty and athleticism. Bountifully flowing manes and tails, joyful exaggerated movement and offering the comfort of a couch while riding bareback. But wait...the most amazing facet of this divine horse is his enormous giving heart for those he loves. He will honestly die trying to please you. I was working on the ground teaching Shoulder In to the Stallion Majestad. When I was done and let him go free I glanced over to find him on the wall of the indoor arena practicing the Shoulder-In on his own. Believe me, once you have experienced the perfection that is the P.R.E. everything about your horse experience will change. This horse is simply the best on the planet. Please do yourself a tremendous favor and look into the Pure Spanish Horse, a P.R.E..
