Can we have a list of all the breed/'category' abbreviations please? I keep getting really confused and I can't be the only one (hopefully :p)

For example
WB- Warmblood.

Could someone tell me what an SHP is as well? :confused:Confused!

NF - New Forest
DWB - Dutch Warmblood
PB - Part bred
TB - Thoroughbred
CB - Cleveland Bay

KWPN relates to Dutch warmbloods, but it means they're registered with the stud book society, KWPN.

It means: Koninklijk Warmbloed Paardenstamboek Nederland (Royal Warmblood studbook of the Netherlands)

Basically very simple Lusitanos are Portuguese and Andalusians (PREs) are Spanish.

They are basically very simillar and the stud books only separated in 1960. PSLs are a bit smaller and more workman like. They are still bred predominantly to work, including bullfighting so more emphasis has been put on their agility, speed and bravery than their looks. I think they tend to have less impressive manes and tails.

One easy way to tell them appart is that PSLs are branded on the right flank and PREs on the left flank.

I could could go on forever about Lusitanos so I'd better stop now.

An SHP would be a Show Hunter Pony I suspect. It's not a breed so to speak as a classification - usually used in reference to a ponies type, and the most suitable show class for it to be entered in should it be shown. It's like the working hunter pony classes but focuses purely on the showing aspect - no jumping that is in the workers

Hope that helps x
