Philosophy of NL stables
Nicky Lieberton’s fondness of Spanish horses goes beyond the fairytale looks of long manes and an impressive appearance. “I too often noticed ambitious riders buying the most beautiful horses that then turn out to be too temperamental for them to ride. I like a horse that is suited for all occasions: from refining the advanced dressage movements to a carefree beach or trail ride. The one does not necessarily rule out the other as is proven by the Spanish horses and their temperament. Spanish horses can fulfill the needs of both the ambitious sport riders and the older riders who love going for a relaxed and carefree ride. These horses are blessed with an honest character and pleasant rideability. It’s because they have been at the heart of the Spanish community for centuries, always right by their side even during folk festivals for example. As a result, they are people-oriented and less distracted by nature. You can even work with a young horse without worries. The right feeling is very important to us. Everyone must feel at ease aboard them”, explains Lieberton.
