It is with a lot of passion that Jean Michel Navarro for over more than 30 years breeds horses of the race Full-blooded Lusitanos , in different colortypes and combining strenght , mentality and gaits.
At the present time, the Haras has several stallions and broodmares. Our foals are handled right from the weaning, they learn as well working in-hand as to give feet. This is how a relationship of trust is established. Thereafter our foals return to the meadow, in order to go on with their development in a natural way until their age of 3. The breaking in (saddle training) of our horses is carried out in a way that respects their growth and development but above all to build them on solid basisses so they will be real working partners in the futur.
