The Lusitano, also known as the Pure Blood Lusitano, is a Portuguese horse breed, closely related to the Spanish Andalusian horse. Both are sometimes called Iberian horses. It is notable for great intelligence. It is also a calm, brave, and stable horse, as shown by its ability to remain undaunted when faced by a raging bull. Though cool under pressure, the Lusitano is also a warm and affectionate horse.
These photographs were shot with no headcollar in an enclosed studio with lighting in place which would have been impossible with a more excitable horse.
