“History of Jose Luis Tejada Caballerizas (Stables)”

When Jose Luis Tejada was only seven years old he started to ride on horse in the riding school of Pablo Hermoso de Mendoza in Logroño, where he kept on practising this activity until he was twelve. At that moment, Pablo Hermoso de Mendoza moved his riding school to the region of Navarra de Estella, where Jose Luis Tejada moved as well. At that time, at the age of sixteen, Jose Luis Tejada discovers--encouraged by the beginnings with Pablo Hermoso de Mendoza-- the world of mounted bullfighting ("rejoneo"), taking part and bullfighting in over twenty events.

As he was considered to be a better rider than bullfighter, he abandoned the bullfighting area and focused on horses, animals for which he has felt a great vocation from early ages.

At the age of 21 he started to prepare horses in the riding school of Alberto Lázaro, without neglecting his training as a rider during this period, which he broadens by spending one month a year at the premises of famous teachers in the world of horses, among whom there were Pablo Hermoso de Mendoza and Rafael Murga.

Fully devoted to horse preparation, Jose Luis Tejada entered in the world of competition, taking part in local competitions and later in several championships counting towards the Spanish Championship.

In the year 2000, making a balance of the work performed during all those years when he tamed and sold over one hundred horses, he started to think about having his own stables, which was his lifelong dream. After extensive works, the dream finally came true, and in 2002 he began his business phase, by opening his own stables in the Rioja region ofVillamediana de Iregua at 5 km from Logroño. His activity consists in the preparation and purchase/sale of Purebred Spanish horses as well as crossbreds, offering a wide range of possibilities to meet the needs of all clients.

Jose Luis Tejada discovered a new area for horses and stockbreeders of Purebred Spanish horses, taming, preparing and selling his products.

Making use of his expertise and knowledge on the field, he always finds the ideal horse for each rider.
