Riassunto: This fabulous new book?the culmination of 20 years' research, study, and experience?celebrates the history of the Spanish horse, exploring how he became integral to the country's culture. It examines his breeding, conformation, and temperament, as well as the different fields of Spanish horsemanship: la doma vaquero, la doma clasica, the work with la garrocha, and the skills of the rejoneador. You will find advice on the practicalities of buying Spanish horses, their care and management, and the training of both horse and rider. In addition, the authors discuss Spanish and Portugese saddlery, costume, and traditional turnout and presentation. Both practical and poetic, and distinguished by a stunning selection of photographs, this is a fitting tribute to the magnicent horse of Spain? el caballo de España.
