Over the years Jonathan has worked with many beautiful horses. Most of them have been Andalusian or Lusitano but he has also had several Friesian and Arab horses too.
The Spanish horse is a very noble, loyal and intelligent breed. They are extremely trainable and love to work. Their natural beauty is a large part of their appeal with long flowing manes and muscular build. They have a charisma all of their own and love to be the centre of attention. Most of the horses Jonathan has worked with have been stallions and for good reason. They have enormous presence and are extremely affectionate.
One of the most satisfying aspects of Jonathan's work has been to find abused horses that needs to be helped and then find it a loving home. Over the years he travelled to Spain many times and found such horses that have then become part of his shows for a year or two before finding their forever home with loving owners.
