Hailing from the land of Portugal, the Lusitano is a breed that many of us will recognize on sight. Much like his close relative the Andalusian, the Lusitano is full of Iberian spirit and is firey as can be. Now Golden Oak Stables brings you a brand new Traditional size Lusitano that is new for 2013 and sure to have you wishing for one in your stable.
Known as an Iberian breed, the Lusitano is a breed with a stunning flare that can capture just about any horse lover’s heart. This ancient breed was up until the 1950’s known as the Andalusian but at that time the Spanish and Portuguese stud books split creating the Lusitano breed. Lusitanos stand between 15 and 16 hands high and can be any solid color. From palomino to grey these horses can be just about any color as long as there’s no paint or appaloosa markings.
Lusitanos have found their way into the modern world as excellent dressage mounts. They’ve also been known for their skills in the bull fighting arena, the battlefield and simply as great riding horses.
New for 2013, the Breyer Lusitano is a gorgeous and fiery stallion all his own. Painted in a stunning rose grey, this stallion has been created on the ever popular Esprit mold. With his flowing mane and tail and his extended front leg, he’s certainly the picture of equine spirit. With his expertly created paint job this Lusitano shines. A beautiful shade of Mulberry rose grey has been chosen for him and there’s no question why, it’s simply stunning! With his unusual and stunning color and his dynamic and spirited personality, this Lusitano will certainly find a way into your heart and into your stable!
