Ibérian Warmblood Horse
The Ibérian horse is one of the oldest breeds on the planet and from it stems a wide variety of breeds, types & variations. The blood of Iberian horses runs through the veins of many modern breeds today.
The idea of the Ibérian Warmblood was to create a larger animal that was more suited to sporting & eventing while maintaining the unique qualities that are admired within the Ibérian breeds. This mix combines the versatility, tractability & smaller size of the Andalusian or Lusitano with the athleticism and jump of larger, warmblooded breeds.
The Ibérian Warmblood Registry was established in 1998 & to be registered under their registry the animal must possess at least 25% Ibérian blood.
