About Lusitano HorsesAbout Lusitano Horses



Lusitano horses are from Portugal and are similar to Andalusian horses. They have Roman features that can be spotted from afar and also have many relatives of Spanish descent. All of the aforementioned are of Iberian lineage and contain Sorraia blood lines. Generally sought after for military purposes, they were also used for Portuguese bull riding adventures, as well as carriage riding. Some have the distinct dun color that is so popular for many in the Sorraia breed. Some can be used for Olympic purposes and hundreds have been placed in the World Equestrian Games. Very high expectations are set in place to become a breeder for the Lusitano. In Brazil during the late 1970’s, a breeder made his mark by developing the Interagro breeding center. This is currently the largest breeder of Lusitano horses around today, located in Itapira. Originally, the Lusitano horses were bred strictly for war and other military purposes. They went on to have a successful career as show horses and currently compete in all facets of horse games.

They are considered robust and agile. They have various lineages. Andrade, also referred to as RA; Veiga or MV; Alter Real or AR; and the CN or Coudelaria. They are depicted as smaller horses with lots of strength. They are incredibly quick runners and are considered rather intelligent on their spurs.  

They are calm, brave, strong, and intelligence. They are well known for their elegance and their abilities, they are beautiful and unique.
