dr ruy dandradeThe A.I.C.S. (hereinafter referred as the International Association of Sorraia Horse Breeders) was incorporated in 1994 on the initiative of the descendants of Dr. Ruy d'Andrade, from 1937 and with a merely zoological order, proposed to recover and maintain a kind of horse that is said to be reminiscent of the wild ancestor of the Iberian horse from the hot southern region, a modern horse substrate from the southern Iberia. Thus, from a nucleus of animals purchased at the Sorraia Valley, whose primitiveness of evidence were very obvious (stripes in the limbs and head, mule list and crucial, dark edges, coat mouse or bay, and others), became the current Sorraia breed (Sorraia Horse),with unique characteristics in the world.
