Yeguada Marqués de Urquijo - The crown jewels



  • @Jessica-Owens Oh thank you :heart:
    @Lidija-Rotherford Thanks :slight_smile: she really isn't very big, but the angle of the photo cheats haha. And yes, soon she will start competing!


    Black beauty in progress

    Taking advantage of the last days of summer, we have begun to jump freely to all the mares to see which will continue to compete and those that we want to leave to breed or transplant embryo. After a hard examination, we obtained very varied results, mentioning PCRA Gabhriella. She's a Dutch Warmblood (Riding Horse) of Show Jumping, RDEC line, being the daughter of RDEC Zamarivo (RDEC Vinterbug x RDEC Zimba) and RDEC Germania (RDEC Ambassador x MHS Grace).

    Currently Gabi, that is her nickname, is competing in SJ with Marietta Sánchez, our rider eventing and SJ. Although she is at a low level (level 6) for her qualities, she already has very good results. In addition to her good qualities, she is a very sociable and friendly mare, always looking for contact with other horses or humans. But especially she likes to receive delicious carrots or small pieces of bread.

    At the moment we have a daughter of her in the stable, called PCRA Geraldine. And the Yeguada del Andaluz recently acquired an embryo from EWE Starhawk and she, resulting in a pretty chestnut filly, called Blasfemia de Borges.

    We take this post to announce that we have an open auction in this moment, in which we sell an embryo of this young promise.



  • The important thing is enjoy

    Different breeds of horses form the Yeguada Marqués de Urquijo. Every day riders saddle their animals for the purpose of being the best in their discipline and the most important thing to enjoy.

    Several new horses have arrived at the stable this week, including Vannan S, a chestnut Spanish Sport Horse (CDE) mare from @Jasmine-Wilkinson . Vannan is very calm and cheerful, especially when she's in the company of young horses or foals, has a very developed and protective maternal instinct.

    With the arrival of the autumn show jumping season, we have put Bounti de Borges in the hands of Carmencita Vicario. This chestnut mare has been competing for several years, but we have not yet found a rider that fits what she needs. Bounti has small problems when she comes to managing her size, she is a very tall mare and is not aware when she is going to jump.

    Finally, our little arabian Zafra YM is starting to compete in working equitation, with the intention of being able to breed Hispano-árabes horses in the future.

  • I don't want to make Bounti feel bad ... but my breeder side feels great seeing the first and third horse ... especially with the Arabian... It sounds tempting that of the Hispano-árabes...



  • @Irene-Duarte Nothing happens :laughing: maybe with this new post you change your mind


    A future decision

    For the Yeguada the months after the summer are a complete chaos. On November 19, "SICAB" (World Championship of the Andalusian breed) begins, for us it is the most important event of the year, together with the "ANCADES Final" (October 9 to 13). This show lasts five days, and is made up of several tests of show jumping (liberty and riding), morphology of young stallions and mares and on the last day it is decided which is the best breeding stable of the year.

    Before traveling to Madrid and with the idea of having a team ready to give everything of himself, the horses are prepared over two weeks, in which the best animals are chosen for the competition. Mainly in the stable the fundamental thing is to get the most potential of each horse in the liberty show jumping.

    The first mare to go to the training track is Bounti de Borges, recently this young mare obtained her fourth title in SJ, being one of the horses selected for the criterion of SJ.


    The next to go to the jumping area was Kelpie de Borges, a seven-year-old mare daughter of Baguira de Borges. Kelpie is a very expert mare, she has a very careful and cold mind when facing the jump.


    Third, Ontaneda de Borges showed that she was born to jump and get attention with her pretentious coat. Since she arrived at the stable she has created a dispute between the riders, since they all want to train with this lovely cow.


    Finally, Orgaz de Borges was the mare that closed the first day of testing. She has not yet been registered in the forum, but we hope that soon she can start competing.



  • Orgaz wow!

    Sounds like you're about to have a busy month ahead!



  • Thanks buddy for reminding me that summer is over and now the chaos in Spain begins :ok_hand_tone1:



  • Your horses are amazing as always :D



  • Ontaneda is my favourite girl she's amazing ! But all they are beautiful :heart_eyes:



  • Love 'em all :heart:



  • @Lidija-Rotherford Thanks :slight_smile: yes, October is the month to die haha
    @Jessica-Owens You're welcome, that's what friends are for :laughing:
    @Aradia-Redmane Thanksss :heart_eyes_cat:
    @Eloïse-Newport They are all very pretty girls, but you are right Ontaneda is special, thanks :heart:
    @Vera-Alvarez Thank you :)


    The crown jewels

    In recent months there have been few news of our Andalusian horses, but in reality they are doing very well in their corresponding disciplines (dressage and classical dressage). Several of them have already retired from the world of competition, such as RDEC Carinosa, WRNGS Lauquiniz V and Atrevida X del Sicomoro with more than 200 points.

    Another of the stallions that has obtained its last title is Utrerano de Urquijo (Lebrijano de Urquijo x AC Naiara), an Andalusian bay with very elegant movimients, distilling his harmonic and elongated trot, his comfortable gallop and his facility to learn new figures. Another fact that makes Utrerano special is that he is one of the best Andalusian stallions in the forum, since he has +25 in dressage in his pedigree.

    On the other hand, we have YI Cautiva IX del Impío a pretty young mare bought from @Vera-Alvarez a year ago. Cautiva is very affectionate, she loves human contact whenever possible, and a simple caress before starting the training can make her feel great or become an angry mare if she doesn't get her prize.
