Talk:Criollo horse

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


I have changed the height of the breed as the Criollo should vary from 1.36 to 1.50m thus it is never 15 hands tall. I also added several colors that were not listed colors. I changed the term Andalusian as the breed did not exist when Pedro Mendoza brought over horses from Spain. They were only Adalusian in that they came from that region of the world. I made various changes of dates and facts that make the article more accurate. I mentioned the term La marcha and La paleateada that both describe major events for the breed. I talked briefly about the conflicts that arose when the breeders association first started and the significant influence the Chilean Horse has had on the breed. If the author would like to discuss any of these changes with me I will be glad to explain my reason and sources.


What do the dates in the first paragraph refer to? It's not clear.

Surely the use of the word 'native' is incorrect, as there were no horses in the Americas until people took them there?

I think Criollo/Crioulo should have a capital C throughout the article, where it's used in the context of the breed's name.

Should we use Criollo (Spanish) instead of Crioulo (Portuguese) as it's an Argentine breed? Bogbumper (talk) 07:19, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Go ahead and edit, and have fun! I think this has gone back and forth a couple times, check "what links here" for redirects? Also for "correct" version in English, Check International Museum of the Horse, go with what they use. Also want to be consistent, either way. Plus consistent on list of horse breeds with no double redirect. And I agree on capitalization. Montanabw(talk) 01:21, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
for Native, just found an interesting tib bit. "The greater part of the evolution of the horse occurred on the American Continent from where Equus migrated to Asia, Europe and South America. page 12 of Simon & Schuster's Guide to Horses & Ponies, by Maurizio Bongianni, 1987. Anyhow, they go extict there then get re-introduced with Columbus." It has Criollo as a breed, I can see if something is needed.Arsdelicata (talk) 06:36, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
that first bit applies to the prehistoric form of horse that became extinct in the Americas during the last Ice Aga (see evolution of the horse. As for the rest, whatever you can legitimately source, go for it! Montanabw(talk) 00:50, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

I think your heights of the breed are wrong as my daughter has been riding a criollo horse that measures 15.1 hands and looking at others for sale on stud farms the majority are over 15 hands, where did you get you facts from????? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:13, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

They can get up to 15 hands for sure! I live in the Caribbean on an island called St Lucia, and we have mostly Criollos and they are mostly smaller than 15 hands but I have seen a few although this could be because there may have been some crossbreeding of a thoroughbred in there at some points. However most of them are quiet small! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2002:C000:A514:1234:8994:FB2C:4E6C:65A5 (talk) 20:56, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
