Itapira, Brazil (July 25, 2014) – Horses from Interagro Lusitanos’ farm in Itapira, Brazil have made their mark with equestrians across the globe, as their athleticism and trainability is matched by their beauty and willingness to work. Interagro’s long tradition of preserving the purest Lusitano bloodlines and exporting exceptional horses continues with the debut of a number of exceptional geldings now offered for sale. Due to increasing demand for geldings in the international market place, Interagro has introduced a selection of Lusitanos to meet this demand. Each horse has been hand selected by Interagro’s team of professionals according to their temperament, movement, and suitability for chosen discipline. Interagro’s first crop of geldings were handpicked in 2013 from hundreds of superbly bred Lusitanos for their potential as sporthorses for dressage, working equitation, and driving. Dior Interagro, a stunning dapple grey by Nirvana Interagro and out of Novela Interagro, brings all the presence and movement required in an FEI prospect. Three naturally uphill paces are one of the hallmarks of Interagro’s selections. These sought after gaits are combined with the beauty of the Lusitano for an impressive overall package. Ferrabosco Interagro, a 5-year-old by Tuf ã o Interagro and out of Baiuca Interagro, exhibits the stunning golden buckskin coloring and active hindleg that will make him a showstopper. Galdor Interagro (Ofensor MV x Umbelina Interagro), is another exceptional prospect, both he and Ferrabosco are progressing well and showing talent for working equitation. Fauno Interagro (Nirvana Interagro x Ninfelta Interagro), has demonstrated exceptional talent in dressage. His uphill movement and compact, powerful build will make success in the dressage or working equitation arenas easy for their riders. Canaletto Interagro (Nirvana Interagro x Ximbica Interagro), a powerful dapple grey, demonstrates excellent gaits and has been in training with Grand Prix dressage rider Pia Aragão. He has shown aptitude for driving and is preparing to debut in competition next year.
