Llanero Horse


Also called the Venezuelan Criollo and the Prairie Horse, the Llanero comes from the animals brought to Buenos Aires by the Spanish (specifically Don Pedro de Mendoza) in 1535.


Each strain of the Spanish South American breeds is defined by the different climates found there. The extreme weather in Venezuela shaped this strain into a small, hardy animal that is named for the swampy savannah plains from which it comes. This is still a common animal today.
