Lusitano




This is an ancient breed of obscure origin, though probably related to the Andalusian, as its appearance is similar, with possibly Oriental blood also. It is an intelligent, attractive, agile, courageous horse and was originally used in the cavalry. The height is between 15. to 16h.h. and it is usually grey with a fine wavy mane and tail. Today it is prized in the Portuguese bull ring as the rejoneadores mount - for this purpose it must be highly schooled in haute ecole, as the entire bull fight is carried out on horse back.
For further details on breed conformation see the Andalusian.
