50th Anniversary Meeting - Great Success

Thank you to all that attended and helped with the best SBHA meeting we could have imagined. It was a great weekend at the beautiful, historic NAN Ranch celebrating the Spanish Barb Horse Association's 50th anniversary. A wealth of information was shared between members and breeders, along with informative and entertaining presentations.  Breeders of the past were delighted to share their knowledge with a new group of hopeful preservation breeders and supportive owners. It was especially wonderful to see so many new faces. The comradery and genuine love for these horses between such a diverse group of people will help to ensure another 50 years.

ADDITIONAL SPANISH BARB NEWS

  • Recent findings on the Genetics of the Wilbur-Cruce Strain of Spanish Barb Horse:

..."the WC (Wilbur-Cruce), horses share the greatest genetic resemblance to "Old Spanish" breeds and North African Barb. These horses, based on the analysis I have just done, are probably the best or near best representative of the Old Spanish type that was brought to the New World". Gus Cothran, Clinical Professor, Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, 2016.
