ABOUT MYSTERY CREEK LUSITANOS
Xerife is our foundation stallion, with Bahama and Briosa being the foundation mares. All 3 horses are imported from Europe and are all fully graded and approved with the APSL in Portugal. To further develop the breed in NZ it was important to get some new lines into the mix, so in 2013 we purchased a beautiful TB mare to add to our broodmare herd. Then in early 2015 we added a new Lusitano Stallion (Jade) from Portugal to our breeding lines, allowing people a further choice when looking at breeding a Lusitano for themselves.
Jo Bard, proprietor of Mystery Creek Lusitanos Ltd, spent many years in England, Portugal and Ireland training, schooling, instructing and competing in several equestrian disciplines, including representing Great Britain in Working Equitation.
Whilst in the UK she gained HND in Equine Studies and her BHS AI in instructing (both internationally recognized qualifications). During this time she was able to grow an appreciation and understanding of the Lusitano. They are highly intelligent animals that love company and always want to please. We believe that the Lusitano has many valuable assets to make an excellent sport horse regardless of your discipline.
Why not come and visit us and view our lovely horses in the flesh. We are extremely proud of the horses we own and breed and hope that the people who own them get as much enjoyment out of them as we do.
