Various aspects of the
Spanish equestrian tradition can be traced back to Arabic rule in
Spain, including Moorish elements such as the use of Oriental-type
horses, the la jineta riding style characterized by a shorter
stirrup, solid-treed saddle and use of spurs, the heavy noseband
or hackamore, (Arabic šakīma, Spanish jaquima) and other
horse-related equipment and techniques. Certain aspects of the
Arabic tradition, such as the hackamore, can in turn be traced to
roots in ancient Persia.
