Lusitano for sale Portugal
Lusitano horses for sale in Portugal and Spain
The Lusitano horse is a symbol of Portugal’s cultural identity. Known as the « horse of kings » in the 17th and 18th centuries, its studbook is very old, dating back to 1889. It underwent a period of decline due to the craze for English Thoroughbreds and sport horses.
He is now experiencing a resurgence in popularity thanks to the horse show and his performances in dressage.
Descending from the Iberian Peninsula’s ancient horse breeds, Lusitanos were historically known for their skills in war and bullfighting. Over time, due to their versatility and gentle temperament, they were used in classical dressage, working cattle, and even carriage driving. Today, the Lusitano continues to stand out in international competitions. He is admired for his expressive gaits and harmonious connection with his rider.

Lusitano horses: what are they used for?
Lusitano Horses: Dressage in High school
By his history, the Lusitano is one of the breeds selected for the discipline of dressage, and particularly for the high school. His conformation and naturally lifted gaits allow him to compete at the highest level. Thus Odin, the first Lusitano stallion to join the Cadre Noir de Saumur, presented himself throughout Europe for his work under saddle and on long reins.
Lusitano Horses: Competition at an Olympic level
The Lusitano is more discreet in the discipline at an Olympic level, which requires a very good step, a very elongated trot, and a gallop with a lot of projection. The size is also notable, the judges being accustomed to horses from the north.
Some Lusitano breeders, therefore, seek to produce horses of a « modern » type that can meet these criteria. Some subjects are thus represented on the international scene, one of the very first in history being Orpheus, the dressage horse of Catherine Durand-Henriquet who led her rider to the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.
Lusitanos: Used to Herd and Sort Cattle
Like the Purebred Spanish, the Lusitano is also a very agile and responsive workhorse, historically used to herd and sort cattle.
Participant in Bullfighting in Portugal
The Lusitano was therefore naturally selected for bullfighting. In Portugal, bullfights do not involve killing in the arena. It is also considered a great dishonor to see your horse injured in a fight. Therefore, the Lusitano was used as a reliable partner.
Lusitano horses: Used in carriage
The Lusitano horse is also used in carriage: the 4 Lusitanian carriage of Mr. De Mello, led by Félix-Marie Brasseur (Belgium), after having been 4th at the World Equestrian Games in The Hague in 1994 and won the Trophy of the International Award of the F.E.I in 1995 and 1996, was crowned World Champion in individual and by team in Waregem at the end of August 1996.
Lusitano horses for Show Jumping and Horseball
The Lusitanian can also reveal great qualities in other disciplines. Thus Novilheiro is a Lusitano who began his career in eventing before being associated with John Whitaker in show jumping. He won thirty events in his first year and in 1983 he was the most-awarded show jumping horse in England and the fastest horse on the circuit 28. A team made up of Lusitanians is also vice-champion of Europe in 1993, 1994, and 1995 in Horse-Ball. World Champion in individual and by team in Waregem at the end of August 1996.
Finally, the Lusitano is also a good TREC horse.
