International Andalusian & Lusitano Horse Association

Preserving and Promoting Andalusian, Lusitano, and Half-bred horses

The IALHA is an association of breeders, owners, and aficionados of the ancient and magnificent Andalusian Horse. We hold true to the long and glorious history of this breed and acknowledge the original Andalusian and Lusitano bloodlines, which include horses from Spain and Portugal.

We provide DNA verified registry services for Purebred Andalusians, Lusitanos, and Half-bred horses.
Horses whose lineage can be traced directly to the studbooks of Spain and Portugal are registered as purebred.
Any horse with one Purebred parent or two registered half-bred parents may be registered as a Half-bred.

We are an affiliate of the USEF and sanction Andalusian/Lusitano classes and horse shows, culminating each year in the IALHA National Championships.

Full membership in the IALHA is available to those owning a purebred or half-bred horse registered with IALHA, or who have a pending registration. Associate and Youth memberships are available to all with an interest and love for Andalusians and Lusitanos.
