Day of the Spanish Horse

I had the opportunity to attend this annual event at Estrella Mountain Regional Park out in Goodyear this morning. I thought it might be a cool place to take some photos and I wasn't disappointed.

A four year old Paso Fino, Lucero de Pretencioso, owned by KK Dubois of Rancho de Esperanzo, and trained by Steven Lopez.

Paso Fino Pretencioso de la Virginia, sire of the good looking guy above.

Another Paso Fino (I think)

I am woefully bad at identifying the different Spanish breeds but this could be a Lusitano.

These three flamenco dancers were kind enough to pose for me on their break.

Pretty sure this is the Andalusian, Espartano MF, of Flat Baroque Farms in Skull Valley, AZ.

Saw this little buckaroo as we were getting ready to leave.

And no festival would be complete without an adorable chihuahua...
