The horses that are entrusted to us are offered the best in care, are housed in large stalls, are well fed and are exercised daily. This attention to the horses basic needs results in Lusitano horses that are calm, generous in spirit and willing to learn. A number of horses are full time residents of our stable, and are the stars of the clients hearts, as they introduce many riders, often for their first time, to the joys of classical skill. These specialized schoolmasters are just a sample of the Lusitano horses, and there are nearly a dozen high school horses that we may provide for you to ride. Morgado Lusitano has had a long standing reputation for entrusting the teaching of their horses to superior headmasters. Several have been riders from the Escola Portuguesa d' Arte Equestre and this continues today with their riding experts, Rodrigo Matos and Paulo Sérgio Perdigão. Morgado Lusitano also provides rider instruction, and from the very start uses the Classical methods that have been passed down through the centuries. This is often done with the help of associate instructors and learning under them is certainly fun for everyone.
