Equador lusitano stallion


The son of Quo Vadis (with a dam by Hostil), partner of João Miguel Torrao, is one of the few horses that have made Lusitano history in Portugal in the dressage discipline. 

Equador had a good record of success on the international scene: he made his debut in 2015 in the young horse classes, and in 2019 he made his Grand Prix debut at the CDI 3* in Cascais, winning the Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Special, with respective scores of 69.391% and 69.426%. The pair took part in the European Championships in Rotterdam, the CDIO in Hickstead (where they won the Grand Prix Special), the Nations Cup at the CDIO 5* in Compiègne (where they finished 2nd in the team competition), and the Olympic Games in Tokyo in August 2021, which marked their last competition... 


On its social networks, Equoresort thanks all the people who have been involved with the stallion and says: "Equador, you will always stay in our hearts!"
