Welcome to our website, we would like to introduce ourselves!

Almeida-Lusitanos.ch consists of a team of people who all share the same passion: Classical Riding Art. Together we offer other interested people the possibility to share this passion with us. Therefore, we are happy to offer you a wide range of courses that cover many needs. We offer dressage courses in Classical Horsemanship in different languages such as German, English, Portuguese. The locations for these courses are in Switzerland and also in Portugal in the form of riding holidays. The course instructor is David Rafael Almeida Olsansky, who is in the top 10 of the Portuguese dressage ranking with his two stallions Feijao-Frade and Finca-Pé. Furthermore, we offer you the possibility to purchase a Lusitano from our own breeding. With us you will find exclusive Lusitanos directly from the breeder; from the rough diamond to the solidly trained dressage horse.  David’s Lusitano Selection includes Lusitanos from his own stud Coutadinha de Cima Sociedade Agricola LDA, Lusitanos from the stud of his uncle Coudelaria Vieira Duque as well as Lusitanos from other partner studs we work with and trust. David has studied equine science and regularly competes in national and international dressage competitions. When selecting our breeding horses, we attach great importance to a good character, a pleasant temperament, high rideability and beautiful basic gaits. All our horses are kept in a species-appropriate manner and are gently trained. All mares are also gently trained before they are used for breeding. With us you will find first-hand horses, directly from the breeder, in every level of training from rough diamonds to Grand Prix level. Every horse is a unique individual. We are looking forward to finding the right partner for you, who will certainly give you a lot of pleasure. Our location in Portugal is easily accessible via Lisbon and by motorway. Here you can find out more about our exclusive service. We look forward to hearing from you, your Almeida-Lusitanos.ch team.
