Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 23, 2008
For the first time in Palm Beach County, the noble and fashionable Lusitano horse collection is arriving for auction from Brazil. This event will feature new collections from international designers such as Emilio Pucci and others at the International Polo Club of Wellington. A portion of the event's proceeds will benefit the Humans & Horses Research Foundation.
Interagro: With nearly 600 horses, Interagro, Brazil is the largest Lusitano breeding and export center in the world. Cecilia Gonzaga heads the stud- farm initiated on a historic coffee plantation in 1975, by her father, Dr. Paulo Gaviao Gonzaga, the author of three books about the Lusitano horse ... the Lusitanians selected a noble, easy to ride horse, famous for its intelligence and willingness to work. These qualities allied to the modern development of the equestrian sports and the exceptional performance of the Lusitanos in all disciplines, from jumping to dressage and driving created an ever growing demand for the Lusitano and its possession became a symbol of status.
