The Lusitano is one of history’s most elegant horses. They originated from horses bred on the Iberian Peninsula over 25,000 years ago. Today those horses have split into two breeds: the Andalusian (Spain) and Lusitano (Portugal).
Also known as the Puro Sangue Lusitano (which translates to “Pure Blood Lusitano“), the Lusitano is as sure-footed as it is noble in appearance. Naturally agile and intelligent, their conformation makes them well-suited to collection and impulsion. These skills were of great use over the course of history when they were mounts for soldiers and bullfighters. The breed still exhibits those same traits today, making Lusitanos ideal dressage and working equitation horses.
