Originating in the Iberian Peninsula (now Spain and Portugal), the Lusitano is closely related to the Andalusian. Known to have a calm disposition and not be quick to panic, this breed was once a war horse and has been used in the bullring for many years. Similar to the Andalusian, the Lusitano is agile and elegant with a strong "cow sense". Its arched neck, graceful appearance and excellent gaits lend the breed to dressage along with any general riding purposes. The Lusitano ranges from 15-16hh.
