The breeding program in Rancho Armendariz is like no other. All of our stallions are either imported from Spain or raised by us, registered and approved in the official stud book in Spain. The foundation stock was carefully chosen for its functionality and movement and having the best racial attributes. Most of them were imported from some of the most prestigious farms in Spain. All of the horses born in Rancho Armendariz are approved by Spanish veterinarians and approved as breeding horses for the Spanish Stud Book.
Currently we offer an outstanding selection of PRE horses, from weanlings to trained stallions for high school performances and dressage. We sell horses in all colors. We are offering a limited number of broodmares in foal.

“We do not know of any other breeder that has won such an amount of major awards in one year, like we did in 2012.”
2012 has been our best year so far, in shows, Copa California and Feria Del Caballo Español where we have won most of the major awards in the history of Rancho Armendariz.

We World like to note that all our Champions are different horses not the same winning over and over again. Also all our Champions are bred by Rancho Armendariz which is a requirement in competing for the Best Breeder Category.
We reiterate we have won every category which exist in a Spanish show competition and which are shows sanctioned by Spain.
We have won over 70 national championships in IALHA, All major Nacional championships from USPREA, and the Foundation of the Spanish Horse.
The stallion and mare that have won the most national championships and being born on our Ranch is Distinguido ARM and Duna ARM respectively.

He has produced over 10 National Champion babies. His mother Heroína G is a multiple National Champion Mare and she is a multple National Champion Absolute Best Movement Horse going against stallions and mares.
