Have you been watching the WEG dressage competition?  The Lusitanos and Andalusians are well represented by many countries. Brazil brought their famous Lusitano stallion “Portugal” and Spain brought their “Fuego II” who got nearly 74%.

Brazil continued their team with Lusitanos and Spain had more Andalusians and, if I remember, one Lusitano. In addition, Australia came with a Do Retiro Lusitano (from Villa Do Retiro where many of our horses were bred.) Another name familiar was Dos Pinhais, the breeder who bred our horse Ursula, and our young mare Amaretta has the breeding from this farm.
