The first time I met Quilloso was when I was visiting his stable with a client to see another horse in 2015. He was then the youngest horse in the stable but he was also the one that grabbed your attention. He was playing with his water bowl splashing his water all over his box neighbour. I don’t know if he had some sort of agreement with his buddy where by he was helping him to cool down in the 42 Celsius degree heat or something but he was really showing off. He splashed a big wave of water and then looked up to us as if to show how useful he was! The minute someone approached his door he would be there ready to do something. Just a wonderful playful character.
This is the type of horse that has a heart for both of you. He will work to please you until he falls to his knees. He constantly want to prove himself better. Maybe it’s because his breeding has made it easy for him to carry the rider and therefore it’s not hard work for him to do the schooling. Or maybe it’s his breeding that comes from horses with big hearts and almost godly status that makes him a true gentleman that will try his hardest. Never the less he is a Pura Raza Española of the highest degree and breeding.
Back then he was young and playful and had basic training. Now he can do canter pirouettes, passage, beginning of piaffe, flying changes and extended trot and has stopped splashing with the water. He has also proven to be the most gentle horse for the owners’ grand-children to ride. He truly grew into the horse I thought he would when I first met him. He has been lowered substantially in price (He is a valuable horse) due to that the owner is nearing 80 years old and his family wants him to stop riding due to his age. Quilloso is the owners favourite horse, but his family fears for something happening to him especially as he also still sits on the 3-year-olds!! They have put their foot down and said, enough is enough and all the riding horses are being sold. He still has his breeding business and driving horses. They think that is enough!

To describe Quilloso in two words would be positive lightness!
