The asturcón. Horse of Asturias

The Asturcón is one of the horses referred to in classic texts, with its first known mention in the Retorica ad herenium (80 B.C.). Accordingto some interpretations of the name, "Asturcón" could derive from the pre-Roman term "con", meaning crag or rock, thus implying "Asturian mountain horse".
