The Andalusian, also known as the Pure Spanish Horse or PRE (Pura Raza Española), is a horse breed developed in the Iberian Peninsula. Similar to the closely related Lusitano, Andalusians are strongly built, compact yet elegant, with long, thick manes and tails. Their most common coat color is gray, although they can be found in many other colors. They are known for their intelligence, sensitivity and docility.

The ancestors of the Andalusian have been present on the Iberian Peninsula for thousands of years. They became recognized as an individual breed beginning in the 15th century. Throughout its history, the Andalusian has been known for its prowess as a war horse and was prized by nobles. Andalusians were restricted from exportation from Spain until the 1960s, but they have since spread throughout the world. There are currently fewer than 20,000 Andalusians worldwide, including around 4,500 in the United States. There are several competing registries that keep records on the Andalusian/PRE. These registries differ on their definition of the Andalusian and PRE, the purity of various strains of the breed, and the legalities of stud book ownership.

Today, Andalusians are used for many equestrian activities, including dressage, show jumping and driving. They have influenced several other breeds, including the Lipizzan. The breed is also used extensively in movies, especially historical pictures (wallpaper) and fantasy epics.
