The Galiceño Breeders Association was started out of passion and pursuit to save and continue the legacy of the Galiceño Horse. We are owners of the breed and stand ready to assist in every way possible so that more people may come to know the joys of owning, riding, and loving the Galiceño!
~The Little Horse With the Big Heart~
Although thousands were brought into the United States in the 1950's and ‘60's, Galiceño horses are now a very rare breed. Galiceño Horses are now considered Critically Endangered by the Livestock Conservancy. There are probably fewer than 100 pure Galiceños left, most of them not in breeding situations.
Temperament- Gentle and easy to handle. Great prospect for all around family horse
Intelligence- Bright, alert, and quick to learn
Strength- Usually 12-13.2 hands, the Galiceño possesses a hardiness, courage, and stamina that is hard to compare to.
Coloring- Solid colors prevail with roans, bays, grullas, duns, blacks, sorrels, buckskins, chestnuts, browns, palominos, and grays being the most common.
Every Galiceño is unique! Although small in stature compared to the average horse, the Galiceño is extremely hardy with an abundance of natural courage and stamina. It is nothing for him to carry an adult for a day's ride and still be less spent than many larger horses. These horses are very intelligent and quick to learn with a naturally mild and gentle disposition. They make a wonderful all around and all family horse!
