Pedro Torres is name known worldwide in the world of the Lusitano Horse and of Working Equitation as a growing equestrian sport. He is known worldwide for his many tittles and for his incredible team with the Lusitano stallion Oxidado JGR, with which he shared several World Championship tittles. Pedro’s background is a mix of classical equitation (from the ground and from the saddle), acquired from his seven years working and training horses at the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art. Although competition wasn’t even a goal into itself, Pedro also competed successfully in Dressage, taking several Lusitano horse to GP Style. Wether he is training a horse for Working Equitation or Competition Dressage, his own riding goals are simple: to ride better, to deepen the understanding of the horse as an individual - both in terms of personality as well as physical capabilities. For him riding is a dance shared in harmony between horse and rider; a dance to fine tune with training and the constant looking for new rising techniques. His approach of aiming to get the best out of each horse, understand its unique personality and abilities and analyzing how he can help the horse achieve its top potential is what makes him such a wonderful trainer and rider.
