Choosing a Mythos foal is preserving the classical legacy.
Our breeding mares have been chosen for their great minds and temperaments, correct conformation with adherence to the breed standard, and athletic capability. Not only are they beautiful, but they are functional as well. We train and ride many of or mares before putting them in foal. They are elegant, yet have substance, wide chests, well developed muscle, strong hindquarters and toplines. This philosophy has rewarded us with beautiful, intelligent athletes.
Over the years since we began in the mid-90s, many changes have taken place in the breeding practices, and we have witnessed trends that have come and gone. The horses are much bigger, in some cases they have lost the traditional 'baroque look'. Their movements have been altered to reflect the desires of the European dressage market, placing emphasis on a more open, ground covering trot to compete with Warmbloods. A bone-jarring trot that requires an athlete. Gone are the couch-comfy gaits the breed has been known for, which are easily ridden by the average amateur rider.
With the fad of breeding bigger, we have seen 18H and taller Andalusians emerge. With that comes concerns over soundness issues identified as a by product of the increase in size. We've seen both Spanish and Portuguese horses that look and move like Warmbloods.
This mechanical, structural change sends the hind end going out behind the horse. The result adversely affects its ability to do the collected movements. What happened to natural collection? This is a lot to sacrifice for the trade-off of a Warmblood sized trot. While wonderful, it is different.
With careful selection, it has been our goal over almost 3 decades to both preserve the classical fidelity of the breed AND produce exceptional moving athletes. Mythos has enjoyed the good fortune of producing foals born with natural collection - that have shown the piaffe and canter pirouette within a few hours of birth. Our foals fall within the average size range specified in the breed standard, generally between 15.2H - 16.3H.
While maintaining a focus of preserving the purest Cartujano lines, we have incorporated two additional elements into the program. To underscore the importance of producing offspring with athletic prowess, we selected a few magnificent stallion lines who have produced Olympic team offspring. In addition, we have incorporated several top tier stallions who have achieved the ELITE and Qualified/Calificado status in the studbook thru a special grading process. The goal is to bring together the classical traits with accomplished athletic giants.
And finally. The icing on the cake. While this is not a color-focused breeding program, we offer exotic colored mares carrying dilute genetics, such as creme, buckskin, pearl, perlino, and ND-1, ND-2 factors in the program.
