About Spanish Barb HorsesAbout Spanish Barb Horses



Spanish Barb horses originated in America. They are a crossrnbetween Barb and Andalusian horses. They are known to be extremely resilient,rngood riders, and possess an immaculate cow sense. Andalusian ancestry has givenrnthem good conformation and responsiveness.rnrn 

They average in the range of 13.3 to 15 hands high. They arernfound in bay, dark bay, and black, with grays appearing because of Andalusianrninfluence. Their head is narrow and refined with a convex profile, their neckrnis arched and their withers pronounced. Their thick body is indicative of its stayingrnpower, although they have thin legs, that are not. Overall, they are an elegantrnmix of the Andalusian and Barb horses.rnrn 

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

rnrnThanks to the efforts of Susan Field-Paulton the SpanishrnBarb continues to exist as a breed. Her interests in preserving the breed beganrnin 1957 when the horses were virtually gone from the American landscape. Withrnthe use of one strong stallion, Scarface, the breed has been built up to thernherd of around 250 that exists today.
