Luis Valença- Master of high school horse

Master of high school horse

They show the most difficult dressage lessons and the art of the high school in perfection: the team around Luis Valença. The Portugal veteran and his team have been an integral part of the European tour right from the start and can look back on a long show history. With beautiful white Lusitanos they enchant the audience year after year in the biggest arenas in Germany and Europe.

In order to be able to show the lessons of the high school with the certain ease, the horses must bring special physical abilities and character characteristics. For Luis here comes only one race in question: the noble Lusitanos. In addition to the high knee action and the elegant walkways that they bring along by nature, they are also very expressive beings who like to present themselves in the arena.

Special family business

For the Portuguese old master, working with horses has become a great passion, even a philosophy of life. This passion is shared by family members of three generations, some of whom live on different continents. But whether in Portugal or far away in Australia, they all share a deep connection to animals and a passion for riding. Luis’ daughter Filipa is also responsible for the success of Valença. Together with her the old master discusses new choreographies, searches for talented riders and suitable show horses. She is also the one who accompanies the team during the European tour and makes sure that people and animals also go well away from the arena.
