In 2005, Fundación para la Promoción del Deporte Ecuestre began its activity, with its first President and Founder Mr. Germán López Madrid, motivated by the desire to create a favourable environment that would allow the development of a sport and an animal that he admired and loved.
In November of the same year, the first activity that marked the future of the organisation was a ceremony in recognition of the successful Equine Assisted activities that had been carried out at Club Hípico el Asturcón in Oviedo by its promoter, Mr. Eduardo Pérez Lastra.
Since its beginnings, the Foundation has enjoyed the support and participation of H.R.H. Princess Elena in many of the numerous activities promoted and carried out by the Foundation.
In 2015, H.R.H. became HONORARY PRESIDENT of the Foundation, a fact that would have a significant influence on its development.
