How to Buy Horses in Spain

How to Buy Horses in Spain

Many people wonder how to buy horses in Spain, and it is true that it is not for the beginner. In fact, we do not recommend that you try it on your own. There is much risk involved, and much experience is required for staying safe.

Our objective is to make it easy for you to come and see our horses. Buying  horses in Spain does not have to be difficult, and it can be a lovely adventure to come to Spain to find and buy your PRE Andalusian in its home country.

First, you let us know what kind of horse you are looking for, when you are planning to make your purchase and what is your approximate budget. If we have something that you like, that fullfills your general requirements and that are within your budget, it is time to come and see the horse. Normally, it is worth making the trip for one horse that you have identified as right for you. Don’t wait until you have more, as this may take some time and the horse you liked may be sold or moved, meanwhile. 

We help you arrange everything around your trip, such as flights, hotel accommodation, airport pick up. You pay for your own ticket, accommodation, airport transfer e t c, but we don’t charge you anything for helping to sort out your travel plan. 

The recommended airport will normally be Seville, but you can also fly to one of the following airports: Madrid, Malaga, Gibraltar. From these airports, you can take the train to the Santa Justa station in Seville. Or rent a car and drive, the scenery is very beautiful.  

It’s usually enough to have a full day in Seville, so we recommend arriving in the evening the day before, then spending all next day with horses, to go back the next day. Sometimes you may want to stay another couple of days. This depends on how many horses you have scheduled to see, and if you want to visit beautiful Seville, or some other sites in Andalusia. 

If there is a horse you like, we will help you arrange the veterinary inspection, insurance and transportation all the way home. You can also choose to do this all by yourself, it is up to you.

It sometimes happen that people buy their horse via video + veterinary inspection, rather than coming themselves. It is also possible to send a representative, that we then take care of.
