These beautiful Lusitano horses are from Brazil.  They are part of the Sons of the Wind Classical Dressage School. Classical Horsemanship originates from the time when horses were used in battle. The moves of the horses seen today were used hundreds of years ago as defense.  The performance is exciting to see. I had the good fortune to capture some of the action before the performance. The riders and horse are equipped in a baroque costume. Vitor Silva owns and trains students and horses at Sons of the Wind Farm.

Onlookers appreciating the style and beauty of the Classical Lusitano Dressage!
