The objective is to compete and teach in the discipline of Dressage at national and international level. The Lusitano breed, deeply immersed in Portuguese tradition, is the oldest saddle horse in the world. It possesses a natural aptitude for high school and airs above the ground exercises in dressage, with an extraordinary ability to collect itself.
