About Iggy

DOB:01/01/1999

Height: 14.2 hh

Breed: Andalucian

Colour: Bay

Gender: Gelding

 

Ingrato was born in Spain and is a classically trained dressage horse. His full name, Ingrato, is Spanish for ungrateful, which is an odd choice of name! He’s more often known by his nickname, Iggy.

He is mostly used for more advanced riders and career students as he can teach them so much about what dressage should feel like.

As a dressage horse Iggys jumping was rather neglected but since coming to Deen City Farm he has learnt to jump, he has quite a good natural technique and seems to enjoy it as a fun break from the dressage.

Iggy’s coat colour is bay, meaning he has a brown body and points (feet, ears and nose), mane and tail. The white mark on his forehead is a star marking!

 

About the Andalusian

The Andalusian, also known as the Pure Spanish Horse is a breed from the Iberian Peninsula. It’s a very old breed, having been recognised since the 15th century and changing very little in that time. Throughout it’s history, it has been known for its prowess as a war horse, and was highly prized by nobility! The breed was not easily available outside of Spain until the 1960’s, but has since spread throughout the world. 

As a breed, the Andalusian is strong and compact yet elegant, with long thick manes and tails. The most common colour is grey, but there are plenty of other coat colours. They are known for their intelligence and were originally often used for classical dressage, and are still popular dressage horses today.
