There is no mistake that Lusitanos have been the preferred horses of kings for their noble character and faithful partnership qualities throughout the centuries. Their inherently sweet nature allows a unique relationship to develop between horse and rider. Lusitanos have been bred for the ultimate in functionality, as well as temperament, and they are especially work willing. The Lusitano is the perfect horse for professionals and amateurs alike – for high-level competition (seven Lusitano horses competed in dressage at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in Hong Kong), or as a dependable trail companion.Dominique Barbier acquired his first Lusitano in 1973. Lusitanos are not a passing fancy but the voyage of a lifetime! In fact, the world is coming to realize what has been a way of life at Barbier Farm for over 30 years.Visit Barbier Farm, by appointment, and enjoy meeting and riding our Lusitano horses.
