A Very Tall Mare

Hiedra VG (Joyero Salvatella x Mañosa V). Breeder: Yeguada Velasco Gonzales, 2010. Age: 3 years/años. Height: 16.3hh / 170 cm. Breed: Pura Raza Española (PRE)

Yeguada CavalReal contrasts brood mares to confirm which ones are the most suitable for PRE sport horse breeding. Some of the factors we evaluate are temperament, movements and strength.

Hiedra VG is one of the first generation of Yeguada CavalReal brood mares. Here you can see her in a clinic with a leading Spanish dressage trainer. Hiedra is three years old, and just recently under saddle. 

Just as with teenagers, at 16.3hh / 170 cm she is extremely tall for a purebred Spanish horse. As it takes time for her to fill in her frame, at times when growing she looks skinny.

Hiedra VG is a sister of CavalReal brood mare Hechizo VG.
