Miguel Ralão – On his Life

I am very determined that through Lusitano Horse Finder we bring to you not just information on ‘horses for sale’ but about the life in Portugal – the history, traditions, the people… in a nut shell ‘what makes it special’.  The Lusitanos are very much at the heart of Portuguese cultural and to extent have played a large part in shaping Portugal’s history. I believe to truly know your Lusitano is to understand how he evolved through history up to the horses bred today.When you know the history and then look at your horse it all falls into place. Indeed, you can almost feel the steps through times in his canter, his agility, his grace.

Of course it is not just about the past it is most importantly about now, today and the modern Lusitano. He’s still creating a stir in the world, not now as the mounts of Kings or on the battle field but in the International competition arenas and in so many peoples lives around the globe. Giving us joy as our perfect equine partners.

miguel 4Through our interviews with real people living and working with Lusitanos. Wherever it in modern sport, traditional sports, breeding and for leisure we hope to offer you a glimpse into ‘something more’ to a richness of tradition, culture and to modern Portugal. I’m over the moon and proud that the interest in our articles is gaining International attention, so much so they are being picked up by magazines and other media platforms to be shared to a greater audience.

Shortly, I will be publishing my latest interview – ‘A chat with Miguel Ralão’ – who has quietly achieved a large network of International admirers and is regularly receiving horses into his yard from all corners of the Globe. I think you will find what he has to say interesting and informative – so stay posted for it’s publication.

In addition please do stay in touch for our future articles and interviews – there’s a lot in the pipeline –  some surprises,  lessons, riding tips and ideas plus lots of smiles.  Certainly Miguel is a man with a big smile.

In next three months we will be introducing some major additions to the business that I hope will bring even more value to everyone that loves Lusitanos and Portugal.
