We are certainly seeing the growth here at Lusitano Horse Finder. ‘The Lusitano’ is really the breed of this time, not just in sport but as the best Leisure horse to have so much fun with. They are, after all, great looking, versatile, agile, willing and want to join us on our adventures. Lusitanos fit perfectly as our ‘Equine Lifestyle Partners’.
This market growth has brought many amazing opportunities to us, there are many more on the way we cannot help but feel excited everyday with what will arrived next. One great example recently was a 60th Birthday Party we designed and hosted involving lots of Lusitanos –
PARTY IN PORTUGUESE STYLE – Lusitanos piaffe to thrill!
It was a fabulous 60th birthday party for a Danish Business man Niels and joint owner with his wife of the stunning Quinta da Varzea. 80 people attended, many arriving from Denmark and other parts of the globe with no idea what to expect. Nadja Maria manager at Quinta da Varzea had done an amazing job of preparing the Quinta and transforming yet untouched ground into stunning patios and gardens. Her horses looking fabulous in the super paddocks lining both sides of the driveway. Just the entrance alone created such a feeling of well being and happy horses.

The party group spent an action packed weekend enjoying the celebrations which intertwined Lusitanos, Portuguese traditional entertainments and of course amazing Regional foods and wines. A party never to be forgotten! Even those that weren’t horse lovers could not help but be enveloped into the richness and romance of seeing fine stallions with their elegant riders performing from The Portuguese School of Equestrian Art and the thrilling team of Working Equitation Riders in their Night time show.
It was a pleasure for us the organise and host such an event – We are looking forward to many more.

Testimonial from Niels
It was an outstanding experience the organisation, the events and especially the horse shows were impressive. The area, the historical farmhouse, with the very good Portuguese service…..and the fado singers were wonderful.
