Trip to Spain ~ Mino Stables

We traveled to Alicante, 4 hours south of Madrid to visit another large breeding stable. This farm specializes in the Escalera line of Andalusians which are well known for being competitive in dressage. These horses had more suspension and size then the average Andalusian. They were more similar to a warmblood then the baroque style Andalusian. The facility was amazing and the stallions each had their own outside stall and paddock so they could move around 24/7. The stallions were also handled by women so they were easier to ride and work with. Here are a few photos of the facility and a video of Anne Margaret test-riding one of the  stallions named Armo.  You can see the natural suspension and movement with him.
