At the Yeguada de la Cartuja, Spain’s Royal breeding farm of the Cartusian horse just outside Jerez de la Frontera in Spain’s Andalucia, La Raza Pura, the pure Spanish bred horse, in groups, first of stallions, then of yearlings, followed by the mothers and their offspring, is put through a series of movements designed to show them to their best advantage for prospective breeders and a crowd of excited spectators.
This noble line, extending back, uninterrupted, to a time before Columbus, was originally the product of Cartusian Monks, part of whose monastery grounds is now the Yeguada. If you’re in the area, be sure not to miss the breathtaking equestrian show, display of carriages, and tour of the grounds of this magnificent facility.
I told you there would be horses. Now, what will be next?
