Lusitanos

Casa Lusitana

One of the highlights of August is the open house that Jorge Gabriel puts together at Casa Lusitana each Labor Day. The horses are just amazing: gorgeous, talented and friendly, which is always a bit of a surprise considering the number of stallions they seem to have around.

Talento Sidepass

This year they had Kathy Von Ertfelda and and her stallion Talento WR putting on a freestyle dressage demonstration and Jorge also put on an interesting piaffe lesson as well as a Pas de Deux demonstration. Nice.

Perlino

New this year were a few Perlino Lusitanos for sale. I don't think I've seen any horses with that coloration before and it certainly looks good on a Lusitano. If this photo was in color, you could see how piercing those blue eyes are. :)
