Sussex Lusitanos enjoyed an excellent week of competition and presence at Royal Windsor Horse Show. Our 2 trade stand horses, Quota and Zigzag, met the public all week and were admired by regular and new visitors to our stand. Ditadora, ridden by Leila Rahmatallah, was placed in both the Ridden Lusitanos Class (English Dress) and the Lusitano Parade. Quota, ridden by Sherene Rahmatallah, gave her utmost in the Ridden Senior Showing Class and the Lusitano Parade a grand veteran at 21 yrs old! Thank you to everyone who visited our stand, and also to all the riders who supported the Lusitano Parade Class, which was sponsored by Sussex Lusitanos. Lots of photos of the Show, and our horses, can be seen on our 'Sussex Lusitanos' Facebook page. Looking forward to seeing you again at Royal Windsor next year!
