Find your Lusitano and More…

Since the launch of this new website in January our feet have barely touched to ground. I sincerely thank everyone for the continued and outstanding feedback plus all the exciting new ideas and offers coming to us.

I love to meet new people especially from all corners of the Globe. There is always something new to learn and laughs to share. Certainly having this business brings continuous opportunities for new friendship.

When it comes to Lusitano horse finding it’s a total joy when perfect matches are made.  However, I do firmly believe it should not be just about the end result – that’s important of course!

But the journey to get there should be fun too! Learning a few news things, discovering new places and having new experiences.  We try as much as possible to ensure the road to finding your new horse is an adventure.  So what a great pleasure it is to have conformation we are succeeding.  When people are motivated to write me their feedback I am over the moon .  Thought it would be nice to share some examples from recent clients……. now new  friends.

Teresa introduced us to super breeders and all the horses were exactly as described which meant that all our visits and miles of driving were a pleasure, an education and most worthwhile because we had such fun finding the correct and beautiful horse for us. Her knowledge and contacts is priceless. She even recommended the strictest Veterinary Surgeon to conduct the pre purchase examination and he worked with our Vet to determine the result. A big thank you Teresa for all your help.

guizo 22 copyAfter quite a time traveling with Teresa Burton to many different yards and breeders, we finally took the road to visit the stud of Michaela and Thomas Kleba in Vila Viçosa. The presented us some horses. When An Gola entered the arena, after a few steps and strides of the horse, we both showed the same smile on our faces, we looked each other and we knew: this is the horse we were looking for. I immediately decided to buy him, even although he is not as big as I would like him to be.
The horse arrived directly from the fields to start his new life in the dressage world. He very quickly learnt the first steps on the  lunge and adapted easily to working in hand. He is making fast and big progress.  I find he is extremely attentive to all I ask him to do in a very low voice. His gaits are developing and his trot is now comparing to the best of modern sport warmbloods.
Anton Walliser
Anton, is in fact, a very talented and gifted classical master now living in Portugal.  I am delighted that I have an interview with him coming onto this website in 10 days. He talks about his work and his philosophy for training horses to Grand Prix.
eyeWhen looking for your dream Lusitano horse it can be quite a task – As I said earlier it should be a happy experience.  Sometimes we’re lucky finding our perfect horse in the first one we see,  but for most it takes longer. I’ve written a page on the website which you may find useful see Finding your Lusitano.
Also why not ensure you embrace the opportunity while here to discover a bit more about Portugal the history, traditions, the foods and wines can be such fun too. After all Lusitanos are such strong part of Portuguese History, culture and tradition. They, in fact helped shape Portugal’s history.
