Buying a horse usually is like getting married.
It has to be the right match and it is supposed to last.
And to speed up the process you have to contact the right match maker!
I had looked for my Lusitano for nearly two years. Two visits to Portugal and Spain convinced me more and more I was looking for the right breed.
But several beautiful well trained horses fell through the Piroplasmosis test during the prepurchase Vet check. I was devastated. Those horses could all be sold within Europe or to Asia. But not to me.
I did not give up.
There had to be an:
*Iberian Stallion: Andalusian or Lusitano
*physically and mentally sound
*piroplasmose free to be exported to North Amerika
*perfectly healthy vet check
*complete dressage training
