J. S. Hammerer Stables

Beginning in 1567 when King Phillip of Spain established the Royal Stables in Cordoba and initiated the development of the Pure Spanish Horse breed, a fascinating saga ensued to define and preserve the wonderful horse we enjoy today. A very important part of this process is the development of the Bocado line. The word ‘Bocado’, means bit and refers to the distinct brand in the shape of a curb (bit) that has become synonymous with these horses.
