The magical look and the way this horse makes you feel is simply majestic! Sterling is a show stopper and a crowd pleaser! He knows how fabulous he is and loves the attention he receives.
Sterling is the first Lusitano we have had the pleasure of owning and his calm and brave disposition packed with great intelligence and willingness to learn has been fun and rewarding.
Sterling is a very sweet and affectionate boy that loves his people and want please. He's very gentle natured and easy to own in every way. He is a blast to ride in and out of the arena. He is very sure footed and great out in the rocky mountainous terrain and navigates easily between the brush and prickly cactus. Sterling has a good ground covering walk and willingly goes right where you send him. He has the smoothest trot I have ridden and he can canter a circle in the palm of your hand. He has nice, even gaits on a draped rein and perfect lead departures both directions. He neck reins and guides nicely.
Sterling has been ridden English and Western. He may excel in lower level dressage as well. He's soft in his face, collects nicely and is good in his rib cage to easily maneuver his body. We have ridden Sterling all over our ranch and he is pretty handy in all situations. He side passes to open and shut all the gates, ground ties where you drop a rein and we have even roped cattle on him. He naturally has quite a bit of cow sense and enjoys gathering and sorting them.
Sterling is always gentle to ride even with substantial time off. He doesn't require a program or consistently being ridden. He's very trained and stays that way. He stands like a wooden soldier at the mounting block or will lie down with a touch of a finger allowing to mount from the ground.
Sterling knows lots of fun tricks including the Spanish Walk and pirouettes. He loves to play with the ball and has an inquisitive mind allowing him to learn new tasks easily. He's good with all horses and animals and just wants to get along.
This fancy boy shines with his dappled gray body and has mane and tail for days! He stands right at 15 hands. He's very unique and you won't see one like him everyday. His possibilities are endless! Sterling is one fun ride!
