Generoso Interagro is my second Lusitano horse.
Reitor de Quintana was my first. Debra Barbier invited me to Brasil, and he was one of the horses in the auction. He was a gelding and therefore not what Debra was looking to purchase. I had a perfectly wonderful horse at that time, but I encouraged her to bring him home as I loved him already. I knew he was a wonderful horse; honest, talented, and so giving. Long story short, she bought him on auction night.
A few months later he was mine! He was my miracle. I taught several students on him, and he was always there for me. He was smart and intuitive, and always reminded me when I rode well…and when I did not!
After he passed, I did without a horse of my own for over a year. I so missed the wonderful disposition, the honesty, the talent of my friend. I knew I wanted another Lusitano!Liz riding Generoso at Coudelaria do Castenheiro, Brasil, 2017.
I returned to Brasil with Debra and Dominique and rode lots of wonderful horses. I thought I wanted one of the lovely babies bred by Debra. Then I saw Generoso. What a perfect name that he lives up to everyday! He is truly generous to a fault. I brought him home thinking I would work with him and sell him if he wasn’t the horse for me. Now, I can’t imagine a life without him.
I love all horses, they live in the moment. That said, the Lusitano is level-headed, trustworthy, honest, and a pure joy. The breed of Lusitano is exceptional, and the Barbiers always have the best of the best to pick from.
