SPANISH HORSES

Spanish Horses – Royal Descendants

The Baroque horses are different breeds of horses which are very similar to the types of horses which were used in the Baroque period on the farms and court riding schools of Central Europe and can be seen in various art representations from this period. Baroque horses were often bred as descendants of royal horses for knight games, parades and horse shows. Characteristic for a baroque horse is its typical baroque movement – especially the raised trot, which is made possible by a clearly pronounced knee action.

Elegance and Grace

The majestic horses radiate a unique elegance through their powerful posture, their curved necks and their flowing long manes. Kerstin Tschech has taken their grace and expression to heart in her Baroque horse paintings. But not only in art does she have a special passion for these horses, she has also fulfilled her dream of the Baroque horse privately with her own horse.

Baroque Riding – Classical Elegance

Among the typical baroque horses are the Andalusian, the Berber, the Kladruber, the Frisian, the Knabstrupper, the Lusitanos and the Lipizzaner. Characteristically, these honourable animals possess a special good-naturedness and philanthropy. In addition to shows and musicals, these horses and their riding style characterize a riding art that stands for highest gathering, most difficult lessons and classical elegance. This classical equestrian art is now enjoying increasing interest in leisure, sport and dressage. The traditional form is still taught today in well-known court riding schools such as the Spanish Court Riding School in Vienna or the Royal Andalusian Court Riding School in Jerez de la Frontera, for which the artist also worked by creating horse paintings in the Piaffe and in the Capriole.
