Pura Raza Menorquina

Black pearls of Menorca

Undoubtly, the Pura Raza Menorquina or Menorquin, is a beautiful horse breed in shiny black coat. But to limit those special horses to their beauty, would be more than unfair. Hardly any other breed is as brave, even in their first days already, like these black pearls. Everything seems to attract their attention, always out of pure curiosity and never driven by fear. They are impressive and noble, but never arrogant. You have to gain their hearts with fairness and honesty, but once you won it, they will give you their everything. And so much more you would ever expect a horse being able to give… Their coolness and calmness is so contagious, it almost feels like time and space don‘t exist, when being around a Menorquin.

Thanks to their intelligence and will to work, they are quick learners, even for higher exercises on long reins or under the saddle. Menorquin are famous for the BOT, where they walk on their hindlegs, almost in a 90° to the ground, through the crowds of the fiestas, like it‘d be the most normal thing in the universe. Obviously it‘s not a must to highly train them, as they are also very reliable horses for leisure. Nowadays you can find Menorquins in dressage, working equitation, western, carriage and some do their magic in shows. With only 4000 animals worldwide, most of them based on Menorca, it‘s an endangered breed. One more reason to be honoured when having such a horse at your side. – text provided by Lizz of Spanish Horse Boutique for our 2021 calendar.

I fell in love with the beauty and bravery of the Menorquin horses since I met this breed for the first time in 2013 through Lizz of Spanish Horse Boutique. Traveling the world I know there is no other horse like the Menorquin and through the photos we aims to raise attention to the magnificence and nobility within them. Lizz has been a close friend and brilliant business partner for many years – without her these images would not exist. If you want to learn more about menorquin horses or are looking for your own, please visit www.spanish-horse-boutique.com or Lizz Instagram
