About us

Our history

     In 2005 we began a wonderful project with SPANISH HORSES. That was when we started buying some PRE horses (Pura Raza Espanola). We have always had great admiration for the Spanish horse, in particular, the black Spanish horses. Now that passion has led us to breeding BLACK COAT SPANISH HORSES.

     Our Horses are the lifeblood of our stud, they have beauty, character, nobility (the stamp of the Spanish Horse), they are agile and are adaptable to any discipline. HORSES WITH ART, HORSES WITH CHARM, HORSES TO FALL IN LOVE: "YEGUADA VIDAL-RIBAS MORENO" SOMETHING MORE THAN HORSES.

     Our breeding operation began with the following blood lines, -Yeguada Militar, Don José Luis de la Escalera, Yeguada Marín García, Yeguada Romero Benítez . Horses with good lineage, beauty and class, building a new blood line - “YEGUADA VIDAL- RIBAS MORENO" Horses with Art, Horses with Charm, Horses to Fall In Love. Something more than Horses.
     In one of our visits in 2006 to the international fair of the Spainish Horse SICAB, held annually in Seville, we were watching some mares and fillies from the stud of Don Jose Luis de la Escalera, at his Cortijo Pozo Santo, Fuentes de Andalucía. There we saw CHILENO IX, a colt that will be three years old in January 2007. We were captivated by his beauty and class, his movements and that charm we were looking for. So, we bought CHILENO IX to be our future breeding stallion, he has given us 4 beautiful offspring in the years 2008,2009,2010 and 2011. We have many horses, who have space to be free, and become healthy, balanced and beautiful. This approach has shown us that by caring for the present, we can achieve the future.
     The stud animals we have are beautiful and noble, and they display the finest characteristics of the Spanish Horse. At the same time they are very emotionally balanced horses (not referring to the morphological features).
They are raised with love and care and they are given the space and respect they must have. We achieve their surrender with patience "and not and never by force."
     Since their birth and through their growth, we establish guidelines which they accept readily and with tranquility. This approach allows us to develop horses that are balanced and who have full confidence in us.
From 0 to 6 months we carry out the management and natural handling in stables and paddocks along with the herd, giving hands and feet, head, mane and tail cutting, trimming hooves, vaccinations, de-worming, etc..
From 6 months to a year the colts and fillies live together. At one year old we separate the fillies from the colts, which are then put in the fields with other colts and horses. In our farm we keep horses in stables only if there is a need for veterinary checks or for other urgent situations, such as birth delivery or export quarantine.
From one year to two years we follow the same routine, except that we incorporate other management techniques such as showers, being tied to a ring for short periods of time in order to learn obedience which is essential from birth onwards. As they accept all the above handlings, we keep incorporating new ones, such as being tied on both sides, going into a van or truck etc.. If this was not done, what would happen in an emergency, or if a horse gets hurt in the paddock or playing with their buddies? And, what if we were to take it to an observation box or upload it to a truck or van to be taken to a Veterinary Hospital?
When colts get to be three years, we start the training classes. The colts already know how to go in hand, to carry the saddle, and to accept the snuffle. From approximately three and a half years old, depending on the individual horse, a rider will get in the saddle without causing any trauma to the horse. At that time we will have closed the first cycle.

At that time we will have closed the first cycle.
Between 3 to 4 years old, the colt will be suitable to be a stallion. At fours years old the colt will walk, trot and canter without problems. We will take x-rays to rule out OCD problems, and thus the colt will have reached the end of the first stage of growth. He may be a future stallion if he is suitable or a good sport horse depending on his skills.
For fillies at three years they will have to go through the review of the delegate for ANCCE to be approved as a breeding mare. And between three and four years old we gave the fillies a basic training, working on hand and handling in the paddock. At four years if the filly has been selected as a breeding mare, she will be in foal for her first offspring. Or if she has good skills, she can be a sport horse, or a future dressage horse. This will be done easily with very normal training. These are some of the refinements that make them different "Something more than Horses "Yeguada Vidal-Ribas Moreno"
Our Motto: caring for the present we achieve the future.
