Jurdanea Coudelaria Luis Bastos

International Lusitano Festival Highlights

Well the festival is already over!  So much work and energy to get ready, then it’s a whirlwind of activity and in puff of air gone.  Today I am sitting  in our patio office drinking coffee and reflecting on all the fun we had.  We still have the joy of many elegant heads looking over the doors from Coudelaria Vila Viçosa & Coudelaria Fernando Pinho. Just love them…….wondering how can I keep them all!

Many horses staying in the Lusitano Horse Finder patio won prizes –
