There are many things to talk about since my last post and needless to say they all include glimpses into the World of Lusitanos.
This is a delightful time of year with the new foals born they are enjoying life amongst the Alentejo spring time colours – yellow, purple, blue and even red flowers carpet the rolling hills and wide open plains. The sweetest freshness hangs in the air with a promise of hot dry sultry days on the way….. But right now it’s the perfect temperature warm, with delicate flowers scents on a gentle breeze. The Lusitano mares munch grass and whisking their tails they occasionally glance at their leggy off spring….. who are tentatively exploring their new world or lying flat out in the sunshine without a care.
I’m never bored walking amongst mares and foals – it’s a humbling experience and one that reminds me how important it is to be tranquil in your life or at the very least give yourself time for moments of calm and peace. The mares simply breathe tranquility in and out and it fills me up. Pressures and worries melt away giving way to the spirituality of moment.
So far this year’s foals are absolutely gorgeous – of course I say this every year and I hope I will be saying it for many more years to come. How can young Lusitanos fail with such perfect natural starts they have in life! – In many studs they are free to roam large stretches of hilly territory where they develop healthy bodies, strong limbs and learn social skills within their herd. It is as about as close to natural as you can get.
I would encourage all lovers of Lusitanos (or any horses) to experience this at least once in life. If you would like to join me please feel free to get in touch. Anything can be arranged.
A NEW ADVENTURE UNFOLDS –
I’m excited with my latest appointment to write for a magazine – although I have already written articles for magazines it is the first time I’ve been officially appointed. My appointment is for a top class, stylish Equine/Equine Lifestyle magazine founded in Norway called Equilife – which has until now been published in Norwegian. However, as a result of numerous requests and worldwide interest is expanding to the International Market and will be in English. They are known for their top class articles that really focus on horse people, their horses, lives, sport and lifestyle. The magazine is in high quality paper and print with stylish, original photography.
I think it’s a GREAT opportunity for Portugal and the Lusitanos to have a regular place in this cutting edge, modern magazine! I’m so excited to get started.
I’m on the look out for good stories and interviews so if you feel you have one special one get in touch – TERESA
Keep posted for the first addition being launched this summer and have a look at their link EQUILIFE.
I absolutely love to do interviews with inspiring successful people.They always motivate and inspire me.
My latest will be online very soon and you will not be disappointed. I found João Pedro Rodrigues the Head of the Portuguese School of Equestrian Arte and successful breeder of Lusitanos to be hugely funny, warm, enlightening and thoroughly interesting.
He simply oozes energy and zest for life – in fact it’s quite hard to capture him for enough time to learn just a little of his life and tap into his wide scope of knowledge.
Lena Saugen came along to take photographs we had so much fun meeting his own breed Lusitanos.
I can’t wait to publish this interview stay posted to enjoy it for yourself.
