Spanish Horses UK, was established by Tarma Rowles in Spain in 1999, and prides itself on being so much more than just a “Brokerage”
The horses sold through us have achieved outstanding results both nationally and internationally in the competition world. Spanish Horses UK have worked with various riders and trainers up to Grand Prix level, regular competitors in international competitions and morphological breed shows all over Spain, trainers, presenters and breeders of PRE horses; and sourced horses for their clients bearing the brand of breeders such as: Bohorguez, Escalera, Romero Benitez, El Diabolo, Senillosa to name a few.
After the purchase of Pinturero XX, who was son of five-times national champion, Rondeno, and was previously owned by the Bohorguez stud and trained to Grand Prix by our very own Carl Hester, Tarma decided that a move back to the UK was required, as was trying reproduce such a stunning animal who was not only truly Spanish in his nature, nobility and trainability but also a serious competition prospect who would be considered with respect in the world of predominately dressage, but also sport horses.
Pinturero XX reached Grand Prix and was sold to his very lucky owner but, by then, we already had some good base stock and (luckily) some of his babies!
We have helped to set up centres in Europe and can offer a wide cultrual knowledge which often helps when purchaseing abroad. Even if we have not found a horse for you, we will happily help with the logistics, paperwork, translation and general dealings with horse purchases from abroad. It may be daunting to you but, for us it is something we do every day…
Later, breeding and colour genetics became interesting to us and with the discovery of the “pearl” gene (PRL) we became involved with producing the isabelos in the PRE breed. Our aim when we have been requested to help to set up stud farms has always been to keep quality and movement and we were determined to do this especially when producing colour. We are proud to say that we have had a hand in producing the famous “Pearl of Peace” commonly known as “Oro’ for Christine Kersahaw of Equus Vita. Oro himself is working towards Prix San Jorge and we are now able to offer isabelo offspring from him for sale. We have also helped to set up the stud farm of Patricia Bellone “Ece” Golden Horses and are so happy to see the lovely babies that have been produced and the wonderful response these horses have to her “natural horsemanship” methods and equine thereapy….
So, the brokerage has developed from just selling to breeding, stud farm set ups, training and producing and advising and so much more! We have advanced horses available for schoolmaster lessons in the UK (contact for details) and think this is a wonderful way for people to get to know this incredible breed. We are currently in the process of setting up a new facility in Gloucestershire which should be ready for the summer of 2018 where we will hope to offer insemination services, training and livery, residential clinics, equine therapy (hopefully to include and encourage involvement of people with disabilities) and of course, a couple of lovely horses for sale. We just keep on going!
