Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hispano, also known as the Spanish Anglo-Arab, is a Spanish horse breed. The Hispano originated in Spain as a result of a cross between Arabian and Andalusian mares and English Thoroughbred stallions. These three bloodlines upon which the breed is formed gave it the nickname of tres sangres, meaning "three blood." Hispanos have a head of good proportion with a straight profile, set on a long, elegant neck. This breed has a wide chest with a good shoulder with a strong, straight back. The tail is well set on to muscular quarters with tough legs and hooves. They usually stand between 14.3 and 16 hands high, and are usually bay, gray or chestnut. Hispanos generally show a strong resemblance to the Arabian breed, but can also occasionally show dominant Thoroughbred and Andalusian features. The ideal horse has the features of the Arabian, the quality of a Thoroughbred and the temperament of an Andalusian.show more
