Medieval Times is the world’s largest breeder of Andalusian stallions. Two examples of our Andalusian breeds here—we have Citrino and Cerreno. Now, all the horse airs, fancy stunts, and working with horses, all derive from warfare. What this gentlemen just did was called a capriole. Usually a mounted warrior could defend and attack from the rear with that maneuver. It was very effective in two ways: it was extremely intimidating, try to attack someone from the rear while they were on horse back and have the actual animal attack you and if they actually made contact, it was a very deadly strike, and that’s called a capriole. The gentlemen in the back is doing a piaffe, and then he will move into a dressage. Now the purpose of the high-stepping in reference to warfare, was that the mounted knight was trying to clear a cluttered battlefield—bombs, weapons, carts, other dead horses, as you see them lifting their legs high would free them from any clutter. Andalusians are born dark—dark vane, almost black-like color, and fade to a very light, light gray, almost white as they mature. These two stallions are both mature, one is 15, the other is 17 years old. The amount of training these horses have received has increased their value substantially. These horses are prized. The Andalusian is nicknamed “the horse of kings” because they were the breed of choice throughout medieval Europe, not just Spain—the horse of Kings, the king of horses. The Andalusian are valued for their short, compact, hardened bill, their stamina, their intelligence, and their docility—very trainable, very intelligent horses. The Andalusian embodies the concept of the noble steed. Come out and see the true stars of our show Medieval Times, our beautiful Andalusian stallions.
