Should anyone be interested
I have long been seeking help reviewing the Spanish sources for Yeguada Militar de Jerez de la Frontera. The person above recently tried to add that the stud is now "closed", but the Google translation of the very short Spanish wiki article says "Stud went in 2013 to be an autonomous body under the Ministry of Interior", and that page and some other sites indicate that they may have had a big auction and sold off a lot of the horses - but not all. So I can't tell if they just downsized things a bunch when placing the program under civilian control, or if they closed all the farms, closed just the Jerez facility, or what.
I'd like the en.wiki article to be accurate, but with a complete absence of English articles on the topic, I'm stymied. So any help is welcome.
I did the best I could when I created this article, using google translate from the Spanish wiki page, other research sources in Spanish, and some English-language sources (English source example, one of the better ones, more often I found stuff like this), but my attempts to find a Spanish-speaking reviewer to help me at the time met with a notable lack of interest, and I just let the article sit once the basics were done. I am certain that the article contains inaccuracies, but I did what I could. The biggest issue is that I am sure there are facilities other than at Jerez, but all the English language sources I know of either just say "Yeguada Militar" broadly and provide no details that help, or they specifically discuss the Jerez farm(s) and nothing else.
At any rate, this source MIGHT be discussing the shutdown issue somewhat, but I can't tell for sure: , (the google translation] is a useless disaster); and if it isn't on point, perhaps it could lead you to something more definitive?
To improve the overall article, I do not speak Spanish, but I did find a documentary that looks promising and could be used to improve the overall article: here. If you have the interest in adding sources to the article from the video, see what I did with video sources for Sheila Varian and William Robinson Brown. It's not too hard to do the pinpoint citations, just put in the minute and second on the film where the relevant material begins. Here is another source that appears to discuss the other Yeguada Militar installations across Spain: and this one appears to discuss the facility that handled breeding of farm/draft horses: [http://tododeporte.elcomercio.es/asturias/2013-02-01/yeguada-militar-ibio-1318.html
