This stud farm was founded by Manuel Tavares Veiga

 
Lusitano-VeigaThis stud farm was founded one hundred and eighty years ago by Manuel Tavares Veiga using two Alter stallions he received as a present from King Fernando II and his son Pedro V. Today Manuel de Castro Veiga, his great grandson, runs the business in the same manner and discipline it was done when it started. Careful selection and planning have kept alive the characteristics and traits the great grandfather established long ago. These horses have always been bred for their warrior instincts for the bullfights. They are good at dressage and working equitation too but their purpose in life is to face the bulls in the arena.

Lusitano-VeigaThey are smaller than the Andrade horses with thin, beautifully, convex heads, rare colors, thin slightly slanted limbs , flexible backs and very malleable necks which are great for them to keep an eye on the bull at all times. They are possibly the bravest of all Lusitanos and yet they are sensitive too. They are very quick animals with lightning reflexes and extreme agility in their movements and turns.
