Alentejo is THE horse every American amateur dressage rider dreams of.
He has solid PSG training and is a true "push button" horse.
Alentejo is a schoolmaster type par exellence! He is 100% calm and confident in even the worst situations you can imagine.
I have experienced this horse myself at the Lusitano Horse Fair in Golega Portugal. An absolute "zoo" reg. the masses of people and horses squeezing virtually shoulder to shoulder through the tight mediteranean roads through street vendors, BBQs, ballon vendors etc. etc. Trust me you can not imagine....
Alentejo went stoically unphased right through the middle of all of it to his competition arena and "does his thing"without missing a beat"!
He is a very successful equitation show-horse and will manoveur through all kinds of obstacles safe & secure under time pressure.
His dressage training is solid PSG with tempi-changes that are virtually automatic.
The basic gaits of Alentejo are elastic and long strided. His performance is solid and reliable! His extended trot is very nice. And: he is very comfortable to sit and moves supple due to his naturally relaxed demeanor.

Alentejo is fully PSL (Portuguese) registered and also eligible for breeding. He remains calm also standing/performing right next to mares.
This stallion is still very young for his high training level and he is an absolute ideal amateur schoolmaster. A perfect, reliable equine friend from the competition dressage court, over trail rides with all kinds of obstacles, all the way into loud parade environments.
A beautiful black stallion inside and out with the heart of a true gentleman at all times!
