The Portuguese Lusitana is related to the Spanish Andalusian horse, well known from the Spanish Riding School at Vienna, Austria.


There are several breeding centres that can be visited, three of which are interspersed along the Lines of Torres Vedras.


We can also arrange for a ride on a Lusitana and in the summer we can visit the impressive display of the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art at Queluz, near Lisbon, where riders dressed in seventeenth century costumes perform classic dressage and dance manoeuvres.
