Caballos de Pura Raza Español
Granero IV Malabar
Yeguada Iberica were established in 1988 in Eastern Spain. Later the stud was moved to the United
Kingdom where development of two distinct lines from its breeding programme were continued. A Grey line
from Bocado (Terry) stock and Bay horses from Yeguada Militar (Military stud) stock.
Yeguada Iberica was registered with the Jefatura de Cria Caballar (FESCCR) in 1991.
While in the UK Yeguada Iberica were judged by the Cria Caballar as the best PRE stud - Mejor Ganadaria -
for 5 years - 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003.
In 2003 Yeguada Iberica returned to Spain, near Tobarra, in the province of Albacete (Castilla La Mancha),
on a 110 acre farm, where they continue to consolidate PRE stock with the emphasis on functional horses
with excellent movement and work moral.
Through competition the working horses of Yeguada Iberica have many times proven to be among the very
best, with a long line of National Champions in ridden, driven, movement and morphological events.
Two of the Stud's founder stallions were particularly successful. Granero IV - Predominantly Bocado (Terry)
Bloodlines and Malabar - Predominantly Yeguada Militar, Bloodlines
Enthusiasts throughout the world will have seen Yeguada Iberica's horses in Spain's national promotional
material for the PRE, most likely without realising the horses are from Yeguada Iberica.
For example Yeguada Iberica's Oretana III and foal Octavio III on the front cover of the Libro de las
Ganaderias ANCCE 2004 (the Spanish National Breeders Association for the Purebred Spanish Horse) and on
the famous Zotal collectors calendar 2004

Malabar is one of the most photographed examples of the PRE; and has been used as the definitive
example for the PRE in books of horse breeds of the world, as well as in Juan Llamas's book 'This is the
Spanish Horse' and on posters and publicity material all over Spain.
Yeguada Iberica's horses have gained some of the most prestigious awards
from the Jefatura de Cria Caballar (FESCCR):
Mejor Ganadería (Best Stud and Best Breeder UK) 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003
National Progeny Champion UK (Granero IV) 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003
And 6 of Yeguada Iberica horses are included in Spain's L.I.M.P.R.E. Book of Merits
Yeguada Iberica's Octavio III will go down in history as the first ever PRE bred in the UK to gain Reproductor Calificado status (No A000212)

Yeguada Iberica's Purebred Spanish Horses have been continually selected and bred for function, movement and importantly a superb working temperament combined with a genuine work morale.
This can be seen at the stud where there are usually 15 or more home bred horses performing in the
riding school or taking clients on riding holidays in the countryside of southern Castilla La Mancha.
Richard Lust frequently rides Yeguada Iberica bred horses when assisting in fighting bull round-ups in the countryside of southern Castilla La Mancha and northern Andalucia and with Sue Lust and stud members when they perform riding, driving and work-in-hand displays in Spain and in the bullrings, or when taking part in Ferias and other displays. You will typically see a pair or team of Yeguada Iberica horses taking the Three Kings (Los Reyes) in January or other parades where exceptionaly well behaved horses are essential.
