DO YOU REALLY KNOW YOUR HORSE'S HISTORY?

We are constantly moving forward into the future and sometimes it feels, at an alarming rate ! Do you ever wonder if we change past history by not knowing it? Time passes so quickly and we are speeding forward perhaps without ever looking back.

Our Andalusian horse is ancient and its history romantic. Have you ever wondered what that history is, or if we are wise to try to rewrite it?

Today we as modern individuals we each get involved in new ventures or areas from time to time, and we usually start progressing from the day we moved in. We base how we move forward and what we believe on the day we joined in without ever really considering what happened before we came on the scene.  

 Some things are very progressive and we should move forward with them to improve and advance. Medicine, electronics or automobiles are examples of positive improvement, and no one wants to stay in the dark ages when it comes to those things. However there are things that are negatively impacted by changing their history and may be better off left as is. 

We all know of the heated controversies created when certain things are changed or modified that we feel will adversely affect our world. Food production, water quality, even new laws that negate the history of our country are now leaving us very uneasy. When at first we thought the change was unimportant we later find out those changes are having a negative impact that we didn't anticipate. To strive for change, by declining to remember there was a historic reason for what was, might not be wise. This is a concern to us, loosing the history of the Andalusian.

 With the noble Andalusian breed that has such a rich history lets think carefully before we forget that history in favor of a new story for this horse. In other words we should look back before going forward and at least learn its history and think about preserving it.

If you have a desire to know where your breed came from and why this is so important, take a look through our website at the romantic and beautiful history of the Andalusian. You might be surprised and we hopeā€¦ inspired!
