The first issue of El Caballo Español appeared between April and May in 1978 (that was 40 years ago), at the hand of Director José Mª Martín Cornello. He was appointed by the Information Council, under the leadership of ANCCE President at the time, Juan Manuel de Urquijo y Novales. Born from the hopes and aspirations of its 58 members, it was a means to inform breeders in a timely manner regarding topics of interest and concern to PRE breeders and enthusiasts.
Since then, membership numbers have grown, which has kept the magazine alive and enriched with another language. Thanks to this, El Caballo Español has become the first specialized magazine in the equestrian world to be published in two languages—Spanish and English. Currently, more than 1000 ANCCE breeders and enthusiasts from 65 countries are enjoying the magazine. On average, the digital version hosted on the ANCCE website is viewed by 63.547 users throughout the world.
Over the past 40 years, 240 issues have provided information about the many highlights and achievements in PRE and ANCCE history. Equestrian and sports news have shown the world the many virtues of the Purebred Spanish Horse to provide the world with a global and universal vision of the breed.
