Breeding is the main purpose of Henrique Abecasis Lusitano Stud and the reassurance of all our effort is the funcionality of our horses. We follow modern and demanding criteria for breeding and selection of our mares and stallions. Among our iniciatives to improve, in the last few years we developed protocols for R&D with two Universities specilyzed in the production of horses to achieve better products and better productive results, we developed a partership with our feeding supplier to insure the best efficiency in nutrition for horse with its especific needs (foals at different ages, mares, stallions,...) and we developed a sitematic evaluation system for all reproductores in functionality and morphology. Always with an objective in mind: produce funcional and better horses!
In the area of training, very focused on dressage, we rely in a classic method of riding, always assisted by great masters. We also get a very strict veterinary monitoring to make sure our horses become the best athletes. The different training stages of the Stud horses are based on each animal's physical capacity and menthal abbility for each exercice and we always take in cosideration that the horses' qualities can only be deffinitively assessed after attained its full period of development and maturity.
