The Irishano Horse

The Irishano Horse exists in two sections: Baroque, and Sport.

The Baroque Horses are mostly about 1m46 to 1m55 high and have strong muscles, great neck and a head, which Looks nearly equally to the Lusitano head- this includes that they have often a slight Roman nose!
All in all they look like Lusitano Ponys.
They can be used especially for Dressage, but also for Working equitation or as Show Horse.

The Sport Horse is not that 'sporty' at all- don't imagine it at super thin Thoroughbred. Of Course it is slimmer than the Baroque Irishano, but also a bit larger (like 1m52 to 1m66). They are often used for jumping, because even if they are not so agil, they are very strong and powerful and they really love to jump.

All Irishanos have a very good and Extended Trot. The Galopp is often not the fastest but very collected.
The Irishano Horses have a super strong character, which leads through all dangorous situations. Because of they braveness, the irish People love to take them to a hunt.

The Irishanos vary a lot between the B(aroque) and S(port) Section, thats why sometimes a clear assignment is not possible. In this case, the Irishano gets no letter ;)

Group Info

The Irishano Horse Breed has his beginning in Ireland at the 19th or 20th Century. Nobody knows exactly from where the first Irishano Horses came but they seam very in common with spanish horses and today's Research found out that their are parts of the DNS which are identical to Lusitano.
Plenty of myths surround the origin of These horses.
Clear is, that they have blood of Lusitano and Irish Sport and Draught Horses - but they most be another part, a Pony Breed or something like that. Until today, this question is not answered clearly. Lots of People think it's the welsh Pony, which is the third Partizipant of this beautiful breed.

The Irishano Horse is divided in two Sections- Barock or Sport, depending on what bloodline is predominant.
