About the Breed!

About!

Color
Andalusians are usually grays, ranging from steel gray to pure white. Bays are occasionally found. Blacks and chestnuts are extremely rare. Foals are born bay or black and turn gray at varying rates.

Height
The Andalusian usually stands between 15 and 16.2 hands at withers.  A hand is equal to four inches.

Head
The Andalusian's head is quite distinct. It is larger than that of the Arabian with a straight or slightly convex profile. It is not so large as to be out of proportion, nor small as to appear snippy. The forehead is very wide with eyes dark and kind. The ears are of proportionate length and well set. The nostrils are very large to allow tremendous air intake. The muzzle is large enough to accommodate the large air passages. The Andalusian’s head is well represented in ancient European art.

 
Neck
The neck of the Andalusian is of proportional length and well tied in. It is heavier than that of the Arabian and the Thoroughbred and it is cleanly elegant. The throat latch is clean and not course. The crest is well developed in stallions.

Withers
This is the highest part of the back of a horse between the shoulder blades. The Andalusian’s withers are reasonably prominent, not low or flat.

Shoulders
The Andalusian's shoulders are long and sloping with good muscles.

Back
The Andalusian's back is strong and short, coupled and well connected at the loin.

Chest
The Andalusian's chest is strong and broad with well-developed muscles.

Quarters
The Andalusian's quarters are strong and lean with a rounded croup. The tail is low set.


Legs
The Andalusian's legs are of proportionate length, clean cut and elegant, yet strong enough to support the robust body. They have straight, flat bone, large, joints, short cannons, strong well defined, sloping pasterns of good size and round sturdy hooves. The legs of the Andalusians are usually sturdy, yet are not coarse.

Mane and Tail
The Andalusian's mane and tail are both very long and thick.
