The History Of El Caballo
One of Western Australia's most internationally recognised resorts, El Caballo has over 40 years of rich history.
El Caballo Blanco was founded by Perth businessman Ray Williams and is proud to be known as the foundation home of the Andalusian horse in Australia.
In 1970 Williams travelled the world looking for what he considered to be the perfect horse to breed and cross with Australian horses. In 1971 Williams travelled to Jerez, Spain and bought the Andalusian stallion 'Bodeguero' and returned to Perth to start the Bodeguero Stud in Wooroloo.
In 1974 El Caballo Blanco was opened as a hotel and function venue featuring arena performances by the famous Spanish Dancing Horses from the Bodeguero Stud.
The buildings of El Caballo exhibit traditional Spanish architecture and while some improvements have been made over the years the charm and mystique of El Caballo Blanco remains.
