(VIDEO) Riding Spanish Barb Horse!
If you ever wonder how it looks like to be riding a Barb Horse, the video below is just for you!
For the record, the Barb is a light riding horse noted for its stamina. It has a powerful front end, high withers, short back, a sloping croup, and carries its tail low. It is hardy with clean legs and sound hooves. It does not have particularly good gaits, but gallops like a sprinter. It was used as breeding stock to develop racing breeds such as the Thoroughbred, American Quarter Horse, and Standardbred.
This amazing horse is maybe known as a less attractive-looking breed, but the Barb also is valued for its strong, short-coupled body.
Because of these characteristics, beginning in the 16th century, Barbs were also trained for dressage, in Paris and other European capitals.
Just watch the video and imagine that you’re riding this beautiful horse instead of his owner 🙂 Enjoy!
