More Pure Spanish Horses Imported to Israel
PREs are becoming more popular in the Holy Land. Since the establishment of the PRE Association of Israel four years ago, the number of PREs has doubled, through import from Spain and local breeding. The horses are being used both for dressage and for trail riding, and the interest in the breed is growing steadily.
BOHEMIO I ( Breeder: Francisco Moreno Gonzalez ) is the most recent arrival to the country, and will serve as a family and trail horse for the Isaac family, who chose him for his sweet disposition and easy going attitude to life.
QUINONES MAC ( Breeder: Miguel Angel Cardenas ) was recently acquired as a dressage prospect for Carmen Makover, and will be debuting in the competition arena this Fall.
The PRE Association, with the support of Honorary President, Alexander Zilo, have been aggressively marketing the breed in Israel, supplying the local equestrian community with information about the breed. The Association has held open days, featured in exhibitions, and has also lectured about the breed at general equestrian training courses for dressage riders and instructors. You can count on more “Holy PREs” in the coming years.
