Our goal at the Henrique Abecasis Stud is to breed and train Puro Sangue Lusitano horses with superior abilities, contributing to the breed's worldwide standing.
We work to achieve this by adopting rigorous criteria in our selection of mares, focusing in particular on functionality. All horses born at the Stud are tested in functionality, and are also subjected to veterinary osteoarticular examinations and screening for potential genetic problems.
The lineage of our herd of mares is very close to the Veiga lineage, greatly influenced by Urânio, who was bred by Manuel Assunção Coimbra and was a famous bullfighting horse ridden by António Ribeiro Telles. Urânio sired at the Stud for 10 years, leaving a rich legacy of numerous outstanding dressage and bullfighting. The herd also includes mares descended from the renowned stallion Nilo (MV) and mares of the Quina lineage.
