About Spanish Barb HorsesAbout Spanish Barb Horses



Spanish Barb horses originated in America. They are a cross between Barb and Andalusian horses. They are known to be extremely resilient, good riders, and possess an immaculate cow sense. Andalusian ancestry has given them good conformation and responsiveness.  

They average in the range of 13.3 to 15 hands high. They are found in bay, dark bay, and black, with grays appearing because of Andalusian influence. Their head is narrow and refined with a convex profile, their neck is arched and their withers pronounced. Their thick body is indicative of its staying power, although they have thin legs, that are not. Overall, they are an elegant mix of the Andalusian and Barb horses.  

In recent years the International Association for the Preservation of the 16th Century Spanish Barb has been formed. Today, a herd is kept by the Association, although it is believed there are only about 250 horses in the United States.    

Thanks to the efforts of Susan Field-Paulton the Spanish Barb continues to exist as a breed. Her interests in preserving the breed began in 1957 when the horses were virtually gone from the American landscape. With the use of one strong stallion, Scarface, the breed has been built up to the herd of around 250 that exists today.
