The National Association of Purebred Spanish Horse Breeders of Spain is the international parent association founded for Purebred Spanish Horses. It is officially recognized by Spain's Ministry of Agriculture as the entity that represents the breeders and owners from all over the world and is the administrator of the breed Stud Book, with over 80% of the sector being members.
Due to all this, ANCCE is the official representative before the Ministry of Agriculture when deciding on the measures affecting the breed, such as breed improvement and selection, requirements for registration, competitions, etc.
Constituted in 1972, ANCCE currently accounts for more than 700 breeders world-wide and 22 associations such as those of the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, Italy, Mexico, Holland, Czech Republic and Sweden. ANCCE is the representative of the Purebred Spanish Horse in the COPA-COGEGA( Committee of professional Agricultural organization) and the WBFSH (World Breeders Federation of Sports Horses) and it designs annual promotional plans with the Spanish Institute of Foreign commerce (ICEX) and EXTENDA (Andalusian Promotional Agency).

The 36th ANCCE General Assembly was held at the Barceló Renacimiento Hotel, located on the Isla de la Cartuja of Sevilla.
Once again, ANCCE had an information stand at Equisur, the Jerez Horse Show.
ANCCE attended to a crowd of breeders, owners, and enthusiasts who visited the event, which was held from May 1-4. Both the ANCCE staff and Francisco Almirón, the LG PRE ANCCE Stud Book veterinarian from Cadiz, were on hand to solve doubts and questions that arose during the event.
The Royal Show is the most prestigious agricultural events in the United Kingdom. In 2007 alone, some 140,000 people from fifty different countries visited the more than 800 stands.
